Off-Leash Areas Development
Parks and Green Spaces Levy
Project Information

 

Location: Lower Kinnear (899 W Olympic Place) and
Magnolia Manor (3500 28th Ave W) Parks


Project Status

Thank You Seattle! These projects are complete.
The 2008 Parks & Green Spaces levy provides development funds for an off-leash area in each of the Magnolia and Queen Anne neighborhoods. The two sites determined for the off-leash areas are Lower Kinnear Park and Magnolia Manor.

The Magnolia Manor OLA opened in November 2012. The dog owning and non dog owning community raised $25,000 to add to the Parks and Green Spaces OLA project budget. Check out the community website. Funds are still needed for amenities at the OLA.

The Kinnear OLA opened in late January 2013. The Queen Anne community, Friends of Lower Kinnear and the Citizens for Off Leash areas also contributed to the planning and development of the much-needed space where dogs can enjoy off-leash exercise and socialization. The presence of local canines and their owners in Kinnear Park is expected to make the park safer, strengthen neighborhood connection, and provide volunteers to care for the park.

Seattle Park’s in-house landscape architects, Joe Neiford and Frank Robinson, designed the park which includes a kiosk, natural feeling wooden fencing, wood chip surfacing, logs and rocks, a bench and native plantings on the adjacent hillside.
