Westcrest Park Off-Leash Area 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.

This project will improve drainage and restore eroded slopes in the Off-Leash Area. We expect to begin construction by spring 2020 with completion in fall 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.
