Westcrest Park is a very large park. It has a view platform with a great panoramic view of the city skyline, flat open meadow, with a short walking path, and a dog off-leash area.

Westcrest Park Play Area Equipment Replacement

This new play structure replaces a wooden one that has deteriorated beyond repair. The play area has been closed for safety reasons.

Seattle Parks District is funding the work. The plans for construction are being incorporated into the Lincoln Park South Play area bid set. Both projects will be bid together for construction by the same contractor. We anticipate the bid advertisement in early 2023, with construction starting in spring 2023.

Westcrest Park Off-Leash Area

Westcrest Park, 9000 8th Ave SW, Seattle, WA

Westcrest Park is located on a hill above and west of Boeing Field in southwest Seattle. It contains approximately 8.4 acres and features open spaces and paths, a doggie drinking fountain, shade, trees and lots of open space. For people, the off-leash area provides benches, chairs, and a shady place to relax. Restrooms, play areas and picnic areas are nearby. Improvements include a parking lot, fencing, shelters and lighting.

Parking is available in the Westcrest parking lot, which is located approximately 150 yards south of the off-leash area. Dogs need to be leashed when walking between the parking lot and the off-leash area.

A special, separated area for small and shy dogs is located on the southwest side of the main off-leash area.

From the parking lot, follow the path to the right of the playground and picnic area. Beyond the picnic area, you will see the Off-Leash Area ahead, to the right of the reservoir.
