Speak up now to save the 4+ acre Jose Rizal Dog Off-Leash Area. The Seattle Parks Department wants to reduce the off-leash area to a fraction of its current size and allow orchard, forest, and garden advocates to use land now devoted to dog off-leash use.

Attend a critical meeting tonight to demand that the off-leash area stay its current size and tell Parks Department officials to improve the area and not to give our hard won  and greatly needed land to other interest groups.

Protest the Parks Department plan:

6:30-8:00 pm

Thursday, October 20


Jefferson Community Center

3801 Beacon Avenue, S.

Seattle, WA


If you cannot attend tonight’s meeting it’s critical that you send your “letters of protest” and tell Parks Department officials to make improvements to the site instead of cutting its size to a small percentage of what it is today. Write to:
