Is the dog park completely fenced on all sides?
In 2011 new fence was funded by OLAE and the City of Edmonds
was installed at the sound end of the park. The location of the
fence was the most level area to install and a pedestrian gate was
added for those who would like to venture beyond. At low tides
dogs may be able to get around the fence perimeter, as always
please exercise good judgement and care. Do not go onto the
railroad tracks, that is private property of Burlington Northern Rail
company. Going onto the tracks is considering tresspassing. At the
north end of the park (where the pier used to be) its possible to
scramble across the rocks and enter Marina Beach Park. Please
note the city of Edmonds does not allow dogs (leashed or
otherwise) in Marina Beach Park.
Problems with Owners?
Please remember, you are in a dog park and dogs have
many behaviors that might be considered controlling and
playful such as wrestling and barking.
Recognize what is good behavior and what is
inappropriate behavior and talk calmly to the owner if
you feel the behavior is inappropriate.
If you have an issue that escalates to perhaps a visit to a
vet to check out dog, our advice is to call 911 and ask for
animal control in Edmonds.
The dog park address is 498 Admiral Way and they will
dispatch a animal control officer who will take your story
and act accordingly.
The animal control officers have indicated that they
prefer we call 911 and ask for their assistance. If you feel
uncomfortable calling that line, call 425-771-0205. This
number is their voice mail and it is checked frequently.
Remember, the only way we can have a peaceful and fun
environment is to educated ALL dog owners regarding
their responsibilities to handling their dogs.
