Pop-up Dog Park

Playing Dog

Pop-Up Dog Park temporarily closed 12/3

Attention Pups: The Pop Up Dog Park at City Hall has been temporarily closed, effective immediately.  We received a report that a dog who had recently visited now has Giardia. We cannot confirm where the dog was originally exposed, but because the dog was recently at our park, we are closing things down for the time being out of an abundance of caution.

Giardia is a very common parasite that typically presents itself with diarrhea and vomiting.  If you have any concerns, please contact your dog's veterinarian.

We will be keeping a close eye on things, and will reevaluate and plan next steps in the days ahead.  In the meantime, please keep your dogs out of the dog park for a while.  Stay healthy out there this holiday season!

About the Pop-Up Dog Park

The City of Bothell is excited to debut its second Pop-up Dog Park, as part of an ongoing "pop-up" series, located at Bothell City Hall from November 6, 2019 through February 2, 2020 (or as conditions allow).

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 at Park at Bothell Landing. That feedback is being taken to Council in fall 2019 for consideration.

Location

The fenced Pop-up Dog Park is located at Bothell City Hall. There are two separate spaces: one for large dogs (over 25 lbs.) on the south lawn along NE 183rd St, and one for small dogs (under 25 lbs.) on the west lawn along Bothell Way NE.
