Pop-up Dog Park

Playing Dog

*UPDATE 4/5/2022: The Pop-up Dog Park at Park at Bothell Landing is closed for the rainy season.  We closed this location last fall to begin the annual restoration of the grounds where the pop-up was placed. This lawn gets particularly muddy in the wetter months and becomes difficult to maintain.  The Pop-up Dog Park will return in early Summer of 2022.

About the Pop-Up Dog Park Series

The Pop-up Dog Park series was created in response to growing demand for accessible, safe, and clean spaces for pets and their owners to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors. 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.
