This is really one of the best dog parks I've been too. For one, it's huge. There are so many different types of areas that your dog can play in. I've been to a few dog parks that are basically just a fence around a pit of sand and/or dirt/bark/etc. When you get into Marymoor you can do your entire walk without seeing a fence because it's so large. You have bark paths to walk on and your dog can bound through fields, jump in the water, run through trees, the works. Trash cans are located along side the river. Poop bags are located at the two entrances. There is no small dog play area at this dog park, which can be a real bummer if you have a dog that is afraid of larger dogs - like I do. There is a lot of space, though, so if you avoid the water areas you can do pretty well with your small dog. I've seen mainly well behaved dogs here. I did see a small fight break out at one point, but it was quickly taken care of. People who go to this dog park seem very friendly and they seem like they really care about their animals. This is definitely one of my dogs favorite places to go.
Awesome place from what we saw. We went to see a concert so we were mainly in that area and the velodrome on our walk back. The venue was excellent, they have great bands playing here often. I would recommend checking out concerts here. The price point was great and it was a blast.
Marymoor is a sprawling park with tons to do. I've mostly been there for concerts. It's a wonderful, festival atmosphere that's never too crowded or overwhelming. A whole host of food trucks come and serve tons of good quality fare. If there's a concert you want to see at marymoor, don't hesitate to go. It's fun.
Great place for concerts. Alabama Shakes. Erykah Badu. Salt-n-Pepa
This park has everything! It has a field for R/C planes and helicopters, a velodrome for bikes that the public can use , a cricket ground, a bike loop and many other activities for the public. Parking is only $1 and that best part is the view if Mt. Rainer in the backdrop on a clear day!
