Ellensburg now has two off leash dog parks: one located in Irene
Rinehart Riverfront Park (IRRP) and the second is located in Rotary
Park. Off leash parks add community benefit by
Allowing dogs to exercise and socialize safely
Promoting responsible dog ownership for those pet owners who don't use or own a leash
Giving pet owners a gathering place to meet and share common interests
ROTARY PARK OFF LEASH AREA
This fenced, 0.5 acre area welcomes all dogs (no segregated spaces for small and big dogs) to enjoy the open play field or venture into the water.
Enter IRRP, drive past the main grassy area to the end of the road to park your vehicle. Walk around the tip of the pond (@0.10 mile) to the fenced off leash area. The off leash area is open year round, however the IRRP access road is closed Oct-April. During that time, off leash enthusiasts can park at the entrance to IRRP off Umptanum or at Rotary Park and walk.
Built in 2016, the off leash park has
grass and bare areas, irrigation, a water fountain, and waste bag
dispenser. The area is fenced to create spaces for both small and big
dogs. For pet owners, there is shaded space, picnic tables, and benches
and pay equipment for dogs.
Turn right as you enter Rotary Park to find the 1.8-acre off leash dog park.
