Burien Parks announced Friday that the Burien Off Leash Dog Park on 5th Ave SW will be closed through Monday, Nov. 16, 2020 for cleaning and sanitizing.

A crew will be disinfecting Burien’s first off-leash dog park on Saturday, Nov. 14, and removing all bowls and toys from the park.

The reason apparently is NOT COVID-19 related – these are preventative measures being taken due to a local outbreak of kennel cough (canine infectious tracheobronchitis), a highly contagious respiratory disease in dogs.

The nearest off-leash dog park alternative is the Grandview Off-Leash Dog Park located at 3600 S. 228th Street in SeaTac.

“Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

The Burien Off Leash Dog Park is located at 15810 5th Ave SW:
