As spring is nearing we are working hard to make our park as beautiful as possible! Please join us Saturday April 1st from 11am – 3pm. We will being spreading sand, wood chips, and gravel to keep the puddles at bay, keeping your dogs happy and dry. We will also be trimming the bushes, blackberries, and tree limbs. Bring a pair of gloves and some gardening tools and let’s get to work together! Volunteers will get a free hot dog lunch!
Additionally, tables will be set up with DOGS t-shirts, bandanas, and more available for donations.
As always, the park is financed ENTIRELY by donations and maintained by volunteers, so any and all donations would be greatly appreciated (cash, checks, or PayPal).
PLEASE NOTE! There is construction being done to lay water line from the new school. The construction crews are having to access Grandview park while doing this work. You may encounter trucks in the park and the gates may be open.
Effective Friday 3/27/20, the City of SeaTac has closed all parks as part of WA State Governor’s ‘stay healthy, stay home’ order. Park entrance gates will be locked until the City determines it is safe to re-open.
Please respect this decision to keep our communities safe and reduce the spread of virus. These orders are in place to protect park users. Do not contact the city regarding this, as they are inundated with inquiries and busy maintaining essential operations.
1) FIREWORKS! Fireworks are prohibited at Grandview Dog Park (and in the City of Seatac).
Please call 911 if you witness anyone lighting off fireworks in the park.
If you are in the park on July 5th and notice trash from illegal activities in the park, please help by cleaning up!
2) FIRE DANGER!
With the weather turning warmer and low rain, the Dog Park is getting dried out. Smoking is a fire risk and is prohibited in all SeaTac parks. Please call 911 if you see any fires at Grandview. Please “wet down” any smoldering areas with water (plastic poop bags filled with water work great). YOU can help prevent Dog Park fires!
Foxtail can cause harm to dogs. If you see it, pull it and dispose of in trash. DO NOT throw it on ground as it will spread seeds (see previous post for details and pictures of Foxtail). Be sure to carefully check your dog after each visit to the Dog Park and remove any Foxtails that may have gathered in his/her furry coat, ears, eyes, or paws. Remember that these seeds can work their way down to and even penetrate, your dog’s skin potentially causing health risks. A “Foxtail check” after your Dog Park visit is highly recommended!
