Spend a sunny or even a rainy day at Wapato Park - an urban park featuring a woodland area, a lake, walking trail, plus a historic pergola full of stunning greenery. Wapato has a number of trails that you can walk to explore the park, including one circling the lake that is approximately .9 miles in length and you can’t beat the beautiful setting of the lake and forest. It’s best and most popular feature though is the off-leash dog park! The off leash dog area has a smaller area for your furry friends under 25 pounds, a space for larger pups and an upper dog area for all dogs. The park also provides waste bag stations and garbage bins to help keep the park clean. Water is also available for the pups; there’s a water faucet and bowl.
Swan Creek Park is a 373-acre greenspace with trails for walking & mountain biking, a community garden, wooded canyon & upland forests.
