Marymoor Park is one of the two parks near my house that we can walk to. Every house Suzy and I have purchased has been on high ground and near a park. This park is really a delight.
Besides the concerts, movies, tennis, velodrome and practice fields, there is a very nice walking and bicycling path known as the Burke-Gilman that runs a relatively flat course around Lake Washington.
Recently we have been using the lovely off-leash area for dawgs. Our dawgly Amelia luvs the bark covered paths, meeting other dogs, and struttin’ her stuff.
“Doggy Disneyland”, as it is locally dubbed, Marymoor Park is best known for its 40 acres of off leash dog park. This is where dogs can be dogs. Black Labs dogpaddle against Golden Retrievers to see who can get the prize: an old tennis ball thrown by an owner into the Sammamish Slough.
This fabulous former farm is less than two miles from the main Microsoft campus. It is a great place to meet old friends, new friends, possible dates, and new dogs. Doggie parents come from Seattle, and all over the county, to give their pups some good old-fashioned exercise. And, for Suzy and me, it ups our walking distance significantly so that we can get our required miles walked in an enjoyable way.
