Pop-up Dog Park
Pop-Up Dog Park to reopen Fri, Dec. 20!
Good news – the Pop-Up Dog Park at City Hall is returning soon! We closed the park earlier this month due to an unverified case of Giardia, a very common parasite in the region and especially during the wet months of the year. After consulting with local vets and other dog parks, our team is planning to scrub down surfaces and reopen the dog park on Friday, Dec. 20.
Giardia is present everywhere in the region this time of year, and can be found in food, water or surfaces that have been contaminated with the feces of other infected animals. Infection occurs when accidentally ingesting the parasite. Protect your pups from this bug by wiping their feet down post-visit with a damp towel or baby wipes, and avoiding drinking from untreated water sources. If you have any concerns, contact your dog’s veterinarian.
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.
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.
