Living in a concrete jungle with your furry friend got your pup feeling ruff around the edges? Perhaps they’ve got the zoomies and nowhere to unleash them, or maybe they’ve been doing that discontented puppy-dog sigh while staring forlornly out the window a little more than usual these days. It sounds like it may be time for a trip to the dog park to get those tails wagging again!

These playful doggy paradises are the perfect spots for pampered pooches to chase away boredom with games of fetch, exchange playful barks without disturbing the neighbors, share sniffs among fellow canines, and provide ample opportunity to burn off puppy-dog energy. Here in Snohomish County, plenty of local dog parks offer just that and a lot more for a dog-gone good time anytime your favorite cuddle monster desperately needs some off-leash adventures!

Cavalero Hill Dog Park

7708 20th Street SE, Lake Stevens

At Cavalero Hill Park, pet owners can bring their good boys and girls to one of their two fully-fenced recreation spaces for some off-leash doggy time. The larger area features a three-acre meadow with trees, benches, picnic tables, and even agility equipment for pooches wanting to show off their skills.

The other space is dedicated to shy dogs in a one-fourth-acre designated fenced-in area. Fire hydrants and drinking bowls are also provided for the dogs. However, there is no water supply on-site, so be sure to bring some for your furry friend! They’re going to need it after their dog-gone good time running about this beautiful dog park.

Lowell Riverfront Dog Park

2901 Lowell Snohomish River Road, Everett

Gather your canine companions and head over to one of the newest dog parks in Everett, Lowell Riverfront Park. Established in 2022 and nearly one acre, this dog park offers breathtaking views of the Snohomish River, making it the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll with the pooch, especially with the addition of the park’s beautiful one-mile on-leash trail alongside the river.

In addition, this new off-leash dog park provides plenty of room to roam in a now-fenced enclosure located just north of the tennis courts in the park, complete with double-gated airlock entrances for safety. There are plenty of picnic tables so you can enjoy lunch with your beloved pet, benches to relax at while pups are at play, and a water spigot for when your dog gets thirsty.

Lynndale Park Off-Leash Dog Area

18927 72nd Avenue W, Lynnwood

Opened to the public in 2017, the Lynndale Park off-leash dog area was the first of its kind for Lynnwood. This designated canine companion area features two enclosed pens (one for shy dogs) on a half acre of land where your four-legged friend can romp and play until their doggy heart’s content seven days a week from dawn til dusk.

This off-leash area can be found between the Skate Park and Perinville shopping area on Olympic View Drive, which has driveway access near Homeview Drive. It features agility stations, a pet drinking fountain, picnic tables for seating, and an informational kiosk nearby, which is an excellent resource for navigating those doggy do’s and don’ts.

Wiggly Field Dog Park

413 Sky River Pkwy., Monroe

Wiggle and wag your way on over to the aptly named Wiggly Field Dog Park located at the south end of Skykomish River Park for some dog-gone good off-leash romps and ruffs. The doggy-designated park was created and built by a group of volunteers in partnership with the City of Monroe in 2009. Since then, this 2.5-acre oasis has become a favorite of pet parents in the city as it features dog agility equipment, shade trees, and a small covered shelter for dogs and their humans to cool off on those hotter sun-filled days.

Pups will also feel extra cozy in this enclosure as the fence along the north side is eight feet high, with the remaining sides fenced with a four-foot split rail fence with wire mesh added to deter small dogs from wandering out of bounds. The lower fence and style were specifically designed to withstand the annual flooding of the Skykomish River during winter months.

And these aren’t the only dog parks in the Snohomish County community. There are plenty of off-leash dedicated dog parks all throughout the county. So the next time your furry friend has a severe case of the zoomies or pupper-time blues, head on over to any of the area’s dog parks for a dog-gone good time!
