Off-leash Area Map


Dr. Jose Rizal is a permanent off-leash area that was created in 2001.


This off-leash area is located just south of downtown on the north end of Beacon Hill. It is currently 1.5 acres and offers spectacular views of Puget Sound looking west and to the Seattle Downtown skyline looking north. The park was recently renovated after the Department of Transportation constructed a bicycle path connecting to the Mountains to Sound Greenway. There is water available for dogs to drink. The fenced areas is accessed from a long set of stairs at the north end of the Park. It is ADA accessible from the bicycle trail. A trail runs through the middle of the off-leash area which is compacted gravel and follows rolling contours.
