Dog Parks (Off leash areas)
We love dogs! In fact, we like them so much that we recently created a very cool off-leash park at Willis Tucker Park where “dogs rule!!!” Another is at Cavalero Park and one is under construction at Tambark Creek Park.
However, at Thomas' Eddy and Spencer Island, “wildlife rule!!!” 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.
*Vehicles using the ADA parking lot must display a disability placard. To receive the ADA gate access code, please submit a completed Access Application Form (.pdf format) to the park office at Willis Tucker Park.
Dog owners, please be aware that Snohomish County Parks has received notification of a outbreak of Canine Parvovirus in the state. You can greatly reduce the opportunity for your pet to become ill by keeping your pet current with all vaccinations and following your veterinarian’s recommendations for a healthy happy pet.
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.

Did you know . . .
• There are over 150,000 dogs in Snohomish County and they produce about the same amount of waste each day as the human population in Edmonds.
• Dogs in Snohomish County produce over 2,300 dump truck loads of waste each year. Let’s keep it in the trash and out of our backyards.
• Dog waste is raw sewage and has thousands of harmful bacteria and pathogens. Keep your family safe- pick up pet waste on walks AND in backyards regularly.
Volunteers needed. Snohomish County Parks encourages and relies on the support of volunteers that use the off-leash areas to help keep the off-leash areas functional and maintained. The off-leash areas were developed with the understanding that they would be volunteer supported.
Volunteers are needed to pick up trash within the dog park areas and parking lot. To get involved, please contact us at 425-388-6604 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
