If you don’t have enough space to give your dog a run at home, off-leash dog parks are lifesavers, especially in urban areas like Lacey. These areas are surrounded by secure fences with double-gated entrances, so you can be certain that your dog will be safe while they play.
Since there’s only one off-leash dog park in Lacey itself, this list includes six more places to visit in Olympia and Tacoma. Those parks require a bit of a drive to get to, but they’re worth checking out.
The Off-Leash Dog Park in Lacey
1. Hawk’s Prairie Dog Park
There is a small area for timid dogs and a big area for active or large breeds.
Both areas are fully fenced, with double-gated entrances for security.
Located behind the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center.
No tree coverage or shade except for in the small dog area, so don’t stay out too long in summer.
The parking lot for the dog park is often full, but there is another parking area if you don’t mind a walk.
Can get muddy, with many puddles for dogs to play in.
There might only be one official off-leash dog park in Lacey, but the city is nestled between Olympia and Tacoma, and both places have several dog parks too. It’s a bit of a drive to get to them, but they offer plenty of open space to explore and new dogs to play with. Remember that many of the off-leash areas are inside community parks, so you should only let your dog loose when you’re safely inside the fenced dog areas.
