Love ’em and Leash ’em

love em and leash em

We love our dog visitors! It’s a delight to see dogs in our parks and on our trails. And while we know that your dog is amazing, we also want to make sure our other visitors feel safe, too.

That’s why we’re asking you to Love ’em and Leash ’em. Keeping dogs on-leash helps to mitigate some of the unpredictable situations that can arise when dogs are introduced to unfamiliar people and pets. We’ve posted some ordinances below to outline some district, county and state expectations. We’re grateful for your help in keeping parks safe and fun—for your dog, and for everyone else!

Want to have an off-leash experience? We’ve got you covered! Try visiting Lively Park, a nearly 4-acre dog park with separate play areas for large dogs and small dogs. It’s a great place to play! Lively Park is located at 6100 Thurston Road.
