While volunteers have helped sustain the off-leash area of Edmonds for a number of years, if it were not for the precedence set by two local non-profit groups known as Serve our Dog Areas (SODA) and Citizens for Off-Leash Areas (COLA), OLAE would never have formed.
The COLA website is helpful for anyone taking their dog(s) into any of the Seattle parks or off-leash areas. It also provides a myriad of information regarding pet safety, animal shelters, and places outside of Washington that are OLAs.
The SODA website provides the reader with a remarkable journey of how volunteers can mold two parks and make them into enjoyable venues for all dog lovers. It also has links to other OLAs in the area.
