Off-Leash Dog Area Proposals

Jasper Dog Park

Park Board members conducted a public outreach for Designated Off-Leash Areas (DOLA) in 2018. Park staff, Park Board members, and City Council are developing proposals to re-purpose park areas for off-leash dog areas.

The purpose of the DOLA Outreach process was to identify what services the community needs regarding off-leash areas. The outreach wanted to learn the following:

  1. Whether the City of Kirkland should provide more off-leash dog opportunities; and, if so
  2. Whether those additional areas be fenced or unfenced and in neighborhood parks or larger parks.
