THE POP-UP DOG PARK IS SCHEDULED TO CLOSE ON OCTOBER 2

Staff will begin evaluating the performance of this pop-up amenity and make a recommendation for siting a pop-up dog park in Summer 2024. The community is encouraged to leave feedback via the questionnaire.

Purpose:

The pop-up dog park at Luke McRedmond Park is in response to growing demand for dedicated, accessible spaces for pets (and their owners) to get exercise and socialize with others. With a growing population in our downtown, the City of Redmond is committed to providing special spaces that meet our urbanizing community's needs.

This temporary space will allow the City to test different potential locations and needs for a more permanent off-leash dog area in the City.

Background:

During last year’s budget process, dog parks were identified by the Redmond community as a high priority need. Redmond Parks and Recreation will open a temporary, off-leash dog area at Luke McRedmond Park by May 2023.

Staff and the community evaluated potential sites in the Downtown for this first pop-up dog park. The Downtown neighborhood was seen as having the highest need in the City. Staff evaluated numerous sites in Downtown and asked for community feedback on the sites in Summer of 2022 Luke McRedmond Park was selected for its proximity to housing, parking, bus routes, and trails as well as it's large, unprogrammed lawn area.

The off-leash area will be fenced, have a small and large dog area, and receive regular maintenance and trash pickup.

Issues with the pop-up dog park can be reported using the City's Q-Alert system, and feedback on this and future off-leash areas can be provided in the questionnaire below.

Timeline: May 2023 through Oct. 2, 2023
