Shoredog off-leash site opening in April! Work party next weekend

Are you a dog owner in or near Shoreline? You might know that Shoreline has had two off-leash areas approved, and one of them, Shoreview, near Shoreline Community College, will be opening in April!

ShoreDog, Shoreline's off-leash area stewardship group, is having a work party to introduce and clean up the Shoreview site. They'd love to invite local dog folks to come and meet each other, and help get the site ready. It's on Saturday, March 28th from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm – rain or shine!

Directions to the site: From Aurora Ave. head West on N. 160th and continue to Greenwood Ave. N. Turn right onto Greenwood, then take an immediate left onto N.W. Innis Arden Way. Follow Innis Arden to Shoreline Community College and then turn in at the 3rd drive on the right.

Come prepared to remove invasive plants (blackberry, scotch broom, etc), participate in general clean up of the site, and most importantly to have fun. Tools will be provided by the Shoreline Parks Department, but you will need to bring your own work gloves.

Please keep in mind that four-legged kids will need to remain on-leash as fencing has not been installed completely, while two-legged kids 17 and under will need to be accompanied/supervised by an adult. (Be aware, the City of Shoreline does not recommend bringing children under the age of 14 years to City-sponsored community service volunteer events.)

If you would like to have a name tag ready for you, please email, and include your first name, last name and a fun adjective you’d use to describe yourself. If you can’t respond by the 25th, though, they’d still love to see you there.
