The Future of Magnuson Park

The Mayor's proposed plan for Magnuson Park/Sand Point area was submitted to the Seattle City Council on 9/13/99. The plan proposes moving the Magnuson off-leash area to the southern end of the park with a pond instead of lakeshore access. Also, there is no interim plan for the off-leash area that would preserve our nine acres and lakeshore access.

COLA is working together with the Magnuson Off-Leash Advocates to ensure that we have the best off-leash area at Magnuson for many years to come. We will have a graphic of the Mayor's proposed park design as well as the alternatives that were presented to the Council on this page as soon as possible.

The Magnuson Off-Leash Advocates recently sent a survey on Magnuson off-leash issues to City Council candidates. Click on the candidate's name to read the survey and their responses.
