McChord Field Dog Park

Perimeter Rd and Lincoln Blvd
McChord, WA 98439

What we love about McChord Field Dog Park: This park has a grassy off-leash area for your pets to enjoy. The park is not fenced in and you will need to bring your own water. Families also enjoy walking on the paved jogging path.

 

Dupont PowderWorks Dog Park

1775 Bobs Hollow Lane
Dupont, WA 98327

What we love about this Dog Park:

DuPont PowderWorks Park is The City of DuPont's largest and most centrally-located park and is named for the nearby DuPont explosives factory which closed in the 1970s. The park is 24 acres with the park space uniquely weaving through groves of Garry Oak woodlands and restored prairie. The park also features a baseball diamond, soccer field, large covered pavilion, two playgrounds and an off-leash dog park.

 
 
Follow the rules! Typical dog park rules include:
  • Dogs must be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines and shots, and supervised at all times.
  • Clean up after your pooch! No one wants to step in that mess.
  • Know your dog: If you have a dog that has shown aggression toward other animals, children, or adults, it's best to leave them at home.
  • Taking your kids? Supervise them closely! Let them know that running and loud play aren't a good idea around dogs they don't know well, and teach them how to approach a dog to pet it.
  • Don't bring your lunch. It only invites begging and aggressive behaviors.
  • Be polite and considerate of other park users. Common sense prevails!
 
What we love about this Dog Park:
This view from this park of Mount Rainier is amazing on a clear day.  Make sure you bring your cell phone for some great shots.  There is a small playground for kids in an adjacent fenced in area.
Overall, it's a nice wide open space for your dog to run and there is a fenced area for small dogs too.
