Off-Leash Dog Park
In 2007, with the help from the tail wagging group known as the Dog Park Pals, the City of Sequim developed an off-leash dog park with almost two acres of fenced-in park space. In this eastern-most area of Carrie Blake Park your dog can run free from restraint and frolic with other dogs of all shapes and sizes.
