Off-Leash Dog Areas

Jasper Dog Park

We Welcome You and Your Dog to Kirkland's Parks

In order to preserve each of our park’s unique and varied environments, we ask our park visitors to cooperate with our City of Kirkland Municipal Code relative to bringing pets into the park on a leash.

Pop-Up Off-Leash Dog Parks

The City of Kirkland is hosting pop-up off-leash dog parks throughout the summer 2022. The pop-up dog parks are fully fenced, and feature both a larger play area and a smaller play area.

November 2022 Update:

Thank you to all the visitors to our pop-up dog parks at Snyder's Corner and Heritage Park! Due to the return of our wet Pacific Northwest weather, these pop-ups were closed this week. Typically, these temporary sites would have closed at the end of September, but we were able to extend them due to the drier conditions this fall. For the safety of all, these sites will not be open during the winter. But the good news is we will bring the pop-up off-leash program back next year. 

We’ve heard the community desires more permanent off-leash options. Creating additional off-leash dog areas is an objective in our Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) Plan and has been included in our Capital Improvement Program. We look forward to creating more off-leash options for the community.

Tips for Off-Leash Dog Areas

  • Keep an eye on your dog at all times.
  • You are responsible for your dog’s actions.
  • Please remember that other park visitors may be afraid of your dog.
  • Do not allow your dog to run and jump on other people or dogs without an invitation.
  • Be good to the grass.  Heavy use in a given area compacts soil and damages the turf.
  • Keep walking – you’ll see more, and get more exercise!
  • Dogs must be on a leash at all times unless you are in an off-leash area.
  • Pick up after your dog and dispose of the waste in containers provided throughout the park. 

Kirkland Municipal Code Regarding Animals in Parks

11.80.060 The provisions of Title 8 of the Kirkland Municipal Code shall apply in all parks. It is unlawful for any person to allow or permit any animal owned by him or within his possession or under his control to run at large in any park or enter any designated swimming area located therein. The director, acting pursuant to Section 11.80.220, may adopt rules prohibiting dogs or other types of domesticated animals from entering certain parks or certain portions of parks after consultation with the City Council. Provided, dogs may be allowed off-leash in designated off-leash dog parks, or in specific portions of parks designated as off-leash, or in designated parks during park hours that have been specifically designated as off-leash hours, so long as the dog is under control of the owner or handler.
