About the Pop-Up Dog Park Series

The City of Bothell is excited to debut its Pop-up Dog Park Series in 2019 and 2020. In August of 2019, Bothell featured its first pop-up at the Park at Bothell Landing, before moving to the Bothell City Hall lawns in November of 2019. Additional Pop-up Dog Park locations will be opened in spring and summer of 2020, so stay tuned for updates!

This project is in response to growing demand for accessible, safe, and clean spaces for pets and their owners to get exercise and socialize with others. We received feedback about the need and desire for dog-friendly amenities and parks in Bothell during the Parks, Recreation, and Open Space (PROS) process, and during the first Pop-up Dog Park in summer of 2019. That feedback was taken to Council in fall 2019 for consideration, and more information will be available soon about what’s next for the community. 


Stay tuned for the next Pop-up Dog Park location! We anticipate opening the next location in late spring/early summer 2020.


Be on the lookout for giveaways and resources at our partner booths throughout the pop-up series.


Become a Partner: Faced with limited resources, the City is seeking partners to make this project possible. For more information, check out the Pop-up Dog Park Series Partner Opportunities guide.
