About the Pop-Up Dog Park Series

The City of Bothell is excited to debut it’s third Pop-up Dog Park, as part of an ongoing "pop-up" series, located at Park at Bothell Landing starting June 25, 2020.

This project is 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. 

Location

The fenced Pop-up Dog Park is located at Park at Bothell Landing. There are two separate spaces: one for large dogs (over 25 lbs.) and one for small dogs (under 25 lbs.).
