Off-leash Area Map


Kinnear OLA is a permanent off-leash area located in lower Kinnear that opened in early 2013. In 2006 after an extensive public process Seattle Parks recommended that off leash areas be built on Magnolia at Magnolia Manor Park and on Queen Anne at Kinnear Park and in 2008 funding became available through the Parks and Green Spaces Levy.

Read up on the Planning history of the Kinnear OLA.


The 5,400 square foot dog park is located in the west section of Kinnear Park. The site is a corral configuration on a relatively flat incline beneath a towering forest. A steep nature trail runs past the site and offers views of Elliot Bay. The trail connects upper with lower Kinnear Park and leads to Myrtle Edwards and Elliott Bay parks along Puget Sound.

The off-leash area is surrounded by a 4 fence and has a double gate entrance with a single gate emergency exit in the rear to ensure dog safety. It includes a kiosk, natural feeling wooden fencing, wood chip surfacing, logs and rocks, a bench and native plantings on the adjacent hillside.

On weekends and after business hours the site enjoys a dedicated parking lot behind Queen Anne Upholstery at the end of W. Mercer Street. (Enter at 904 Elliott Ave. W). Mercer is a busy street.

Dog owners should take care to leash their dogs outside of the off leash park on trails and between OLA and parking.

Lower Kinnear does not meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards. For ADA accessible off leash areas in the vicinity, try Magnolia Manor or Denny Regrade or Plymouth Pillars.
