COLA has published a map to Seattle's dog parks. You can download the map here, or pick one up when you visit one of our parks!
At these designated off-leash areas, you are free to run, roll over, meet new friends, work out, play with your owners and socialize with your canine friends.
Please remember that you're not allowed, even with a leash, in children's play areas or on organized athletic fields. Dogs are also not allowed on beaches, except for inside the Magnuson OLA, which includes the only dog-friendly beach area in Seattle.
Each OLA has a dedicated Park Steward who acts as liaison between COLA and the appropriate Parks Department representative to work on maintaining and improving the OLAs.
You can use the navigation at left to view details about each OLA. If you are interested in starting an off-leash area in your neighborhood, contact us for more information.
