Off-leash Area Map

History

Magnuson Park includes a permanent off-leash area that was created in 1999 and improved in 2005 with funding from the 2000 Pro Parks Levy.

Description

The Magnuson off-leash area contains 9 acres. It is a place where city hounds can romp with buddies in Seattle’s biggest fully-fenced back yard for canines. This off-leash area is the only one inside city limits with water access (Lake Washington’s freshwater shoreline).

The site has a large, generally flat play area, a winding trail with several open areas and changes of scenery along the way, and it gives dog owners and their dogs of all ages plenty of space to “work out”. Most of the trail is compact gravel and is wheelchair accessible.

This off-leash area has a small and shy dog area within the larger dog park. Fencing and signs were installed in coordination with the Magnuson Off Leash Area Group (MOLG). The small/shy dog area is located just to the south of the main entrance kiosk, accessible from NE 74th street.

Magnuson Park’s off-leash area is by far the largest, most popular and most widely used off-leash area in Seattle.
