Off Leash Dog Areas

The City of Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department hosts two off-leash areas (OLA’s) for dog owners and their pets to enjoy - one at Luther Burbank Park on the north end of the Island and one at the south end at Wildwood Park. The City welcomes you to enjoy these areas and requests that you please remove dog feces immediately.

Please note that dogs are not allowed in park public swimming areas between May 1 and September 30 and at all other times, dogs must be on a leash or other similar physical restraint. Dogs must be leashed or under signal or voice control in all other park properties. Though the law allows for voice and signal control, even well-behaved dogs can be unpredictable and for this reason, the City requests that when you are outside of the designated OLA’s that you please keep your dog on a leash.
