Dog Rules in Parks Have Changed

City code has been simplified, let us clarify where you can and cannot take your dogs...

City Council has approved an updated code regarding dogs in parks on a trial basis. Dogs in parks must remain on a leash and in the owner’s control. Here in Edmonds we do not have a significant dog enforcement team and appreciate the efforts of dog owners to self-police. In addition to expanding opportunities for pet owners, the parks crew will be installing additional dog waste stations in parks.
