Sunset Park: the rules have changed - no more off-leash dogs

From The Friends of Sunset School Park

Maintenance and operation shift from Shoreline Schools to City of Shoreline

Times are a'changing. As you may know, with the demolition of the Sunset School building and the signing of the Joint Use Agreement between the School District and the City in January, maintenance and operational responsibilities shifted from the District to the City. This means that the rules that apply to Shoreline parks will now apply to Sunset, including the City’s leash law. The city is currently in the process of creating and installing park entry and rule signs. You may see some new rule signs as early as next week. Please be aware that you could be ticketed ($25 for the first violation and $50 for each additional violation within a year) for letting your dog off-leash at Sunset. If you have any park maintenance or operational questions, contact Kirk Peterson, the City’s Park Maintenance Superintendent 206-801-2611.

Shoreline's off-leash dog parks
We do have an off leash dog area in our neighborhood at Shoreview Park, 320 Innis Arden Way through the Shoreline Community College West Entrance. In the winter from November 1 - March 15, Saltwater Park’s south beach is also an off-leash area. With these two parks established on the west side since 2009, the City has worked hard to provide another off-leash dog area in the east side of town. On Monday, March 18, the City Council just approved a new east side site at the Fircrest Campus located at 1760 NE 150th Street. It should open this summer. For more information about off-leash dog areas, contact Maureen Colaizzi, the City’s Parks Project Coordinator, 206-801-2603.
