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 Drainage Improvements Project

Seattle Parks and Recreation is working to improve drainage at the Off-Leash Area. We are currently working on construction documents to put the project out to bid. Once a contractor is under contract we will work with them on the construction management. Our goal is to keep a portion of the OLA open at all times during construction.  There may be a short window of approximately two weeks that we will need to close the entire area.

This project will improve drainage and restore eroded slopes in the Off-Leash Area. Permitting is underway and we are hoping to have the permits complete and begin construction by late fall 2019 with completion in early 2020.  Seattle Park District is allocating $505,000 for the planning, design and construction of this project.

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.
