Mayor Mike McGinn and Acting Parks Superintendent William Christopher: Oppose any ban on dogs in Seattle's public parks

Seattle usually ranks at the top of any list of dog friendly cities in the US, but if a proposal by the Seattle Board of Parks passes, no one will consider Seattle dog friendly any more.

Some local residents and businesses asked the Seattle Board of Park Commissioners to ban dogs from Occidental Park and Westlake Park.

Dogs must already be leashed in Seattle's parks and are banned from playgrounds, athletic fields, and beaches.

Banning dogs from public parks is unfair to Seattle dog owners and is a discriminatory policy.

Letter to
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn
Acting Seattle Parks Superintendent William Christopher
Seattle usually ranks at the top of any list of dog friendly cities in the US, but if a proposal to the Seattle Board of Parks passes, no one will consider Seattle dog friendly any more.

Some local residents and businesses asked the Seattle Board of Park Commissioners to ban dogs from Occidental Park and Westlake Park.

Dogs must already be leashed in Seattle's parks and are banned from playgrounds, athletic fields, and beaches.

Banning leashed, dogs from public parks is unfair to Seattle dog owners and is a discriminatory policy.

Please keep Seattle dog friendly and oppose any ban on dogs in Seattle's public parks.

Thank you.
