We love dogs! In fact, we like them so much that we created some very cool Off-Leash Dog Areas (OLDAs) at Willis Tucker Park, Cavalero Park, Tambark Creek Park, and Lake Stickney Park. Please note: Dogs must be on a leash in all other areas of the park--including routes to and from the off-leash areas.
However, at Thomas' Eddy and Spencer Island, there is a lot of wildlife that we like to keep safe. So, please do not bring your dogs to either of these wildlife viewing areas.
At all other parks, dogs must be kept on a leash and you are also required to clean up after your dogs. These rules are enforced by our rangers.
Currently, water is not available at any Snohomish County off-leash dog areas. Water is proposed at Willis Tucker in 2016. Please bring your own water and water bowl for animal companions. Diseases can be spread by use of shared water bowls.
Snohomish County Parks asks that all dog off-leash area visitors be aware of the importance of having a healthy pet and recommend all pet owners consult with their vet to make sure their animal is healthy enough for dog off leash areas. Please remember to clean up after your pet and to dispose of waste properly.
