I've been going to Magnuson Park since the day it opened. Prior to that I used to maintain the grassy areas of the old Sand Point Naval Air Station when I was in high-school. As a park it is much better than it was as an airfield. Good dog run/play area that gets busy at the usual times. Don't let your dog swim in the 'no dogs' area or you'll be risking a BIG fine should you be caught. Do remember to pick up after your dog if they happen to do their business.

I took a kayaking class at this park. It was a great place to paddle out and spend an afternoon. It has a couple of small launching ramps (that I know of) and a rocky beach to depart from. Lake Washington is a great lake to paddle on from it also!

Great and enormous city park with tons to do: playgrounds, swimming, boating, picnicking, etc. Still, I give it 4 stars instead of 5 for the following reasons: 1. For an enormous park, it's pretty hard to navigate and not well marked. Making plans to meet someone here can be challenging. 2. For an enormous park, there are relatively few running trails. Just a couple of quibbles really. It's a terrific (free) park so close to UW and the rest of the city.

This park is amazing. I've maybe visited for the off leash dog areas, but I've seen some of the rest and there's lots to do. As far as the off leash goes, there's a huge area with some trails including one that goes down to a beach area on Lake Washington. Here there is a very gentle slope for dogs to enter with shallow water so they can learn to go in. There's also a small dog area in case the big dogs get too rowdy.

This is the best place to go when your dog deserves to mingle with others. Very big and adventurous for your dog, your dog will get a great workout. Lots to do here. It is crowded on sunny days, but one can always find parking in one of the parks surrounding areas. Dogs are very happy here.
