Public Input for Off-leash Dog Parks

Currently there are no dedicated off-leash dog areas in Olympia's park system. To respond to high demand for these areas, Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation has developed concept plans for three sites of varying sizes that are located in different areas of Olympia.

Open House on April 1

Olympia Parks, Arts & Recreation will hold a public open house to gather feedback on three potential sites for off-leash dog areas in Olympia. Sites include: Evergreen Park, Ward Lake Park, and property next to McLane Elementary. Ideally, all three sites could be installed. View concept plans at

  • Where: Olympia City Hall (601 4th Avenue East)
  • When:  Monday, April 1, 2019 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (short presentation at 5:45)
