Three Forks Off-Leash Dog Park Helps Reduce Canine Conflicts

Snoqualmie, WA – Many dog owners in Snoqualmie are letting their dogs off-leash in Snoqualmie’s large parks and open spaces, which can create uncomfortable situations for dogs that are on leashes and their owners.

 Dog owners often claim their off-leash dog is friendly and not a threat to people or other dogs. Although the dog may indeed be friendly, this is serious problem for several reasons.

  • Other leashed dogs can feel intimidated or protective of their owner and act unusually aggressive. 
  • Some leashed not-so-friendly dogs can become aggressive when approached by a friendly off-leash dog.
  • Some children and adults are frightened of dogs, even at a distance. 

Three Forks Off-Leash Dog Park has eight acres of open space for dogs to run while owners take a daily break from busy lives. Located at 39912 SE Park Street near Snoqualmie Elementary School, it features well maintained grass, a soft-surface walking path around the park perimeter, fresh water for dogs, an enclosed small dog area, and a spectacular view of Mount Si.  

This park contributes to the quality of life in Snoqualmie and reduces conflicts that can occur when dogs are off-leash in other areas of the city. 

Dogs are good friends and companions, but they are also a responsibility and owners must be considerate of others and follow the law. Per Snoqualmie Municipal Code 6.04.020 (A), “All dogs off the premises of the owner shall be under control of the owner or some duly authorized competent person by means of a leash.” 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Snoqualmie Police Department at 425-888-3333 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
