    Hard to find - but worth the search

    Okay, Google gives completely wrong directions to this place. So here’s the true scoop:

    If you are headed West in I-90 (towards Seattle) turn Right at the end of the off ramp, roll under the blinking yellow light & turn left just at the road curves to the right. You will see the fenced dog park in your left.

    If you are headed East on I-90 (towards Coeur d’Alene), turn Left at the end of the off ramp, go over I-90, roll under the blinking yellow light and then turn left just as the main road starts to curve to the right. You will see the fenced area on your left and that’s the dog park..

    The dog park itself is fully fenced with 6 foot chain-link. It has a big open area in the front with some agility equipment and there is a large wooded area which has a nice path around it easy to stroll on for people while the dogs go and inspect all the trees or chase a ball. There are a couple covered picnic tables as well and it appears that there is water on site during the summer months, but it has been turned off now for winter. all in all quite a lovely park especially for a summer stop with this nice shaded treat area.

    Just the Right Amount of Busy

    There is a single double gate entrance to this large gravel/dirt park.
    There is access to water.
    There are NOT small and large dog divided areas.
    There is both a paved trail around the perimeter and a gravel trail for walking.
    There was plenty of tree shade and three covered picnic benches for the humans.
    Plenty of bags and several balls to toss.
    Other dog owners were attentive and friendly.
    There is construction and a watercraft check area that Google maps will direct you to. If you are coming from the east Go past the I90 west ramp before you turn left.
    The entrance area is puke-worthy in smell. Too much urine that is clearly never rinsed down and there is no grass to help absorb the odor. This park could be greatly improved by adding grass.

    Very Nice Off-Leash Park

    While traveling through the area, we saw this dog park. It is just off of an off-ramp from the freeway. The only tricky part is then making a left (after crossing over the freeway) onto a gravel road. The paved road curves to the right - but do not go that way. Make a left onto the gravel road, go a very short distance and you are there.
    The dog park has great parking, fenced, trees, water, seating. Fantastic off-leash, fenced dog park.

    awesome off leash park

    Turn left off of freeway, then left at the yellow 🔛sign (road turns right). You'll see the fenced in park on your left.

    Great Dog Park

    Took my dog here for 18 days as we were staying in a hotel. It has lots of land for dogs to run around. Dog drinking fountains, tons of bags, and lots of shelter areas. In case this address does not help, Take exit 299 going toward Idaho on I-90 and take a left. Then once you take reach a point where you can't go straight take a left and then another left. You have to go around the old Welcome Center to get there. Great Dog park. Highly recommend to anyone.

    Think Harder

    Large and fenced with open and shaded areas. Easy to get to and park (former rest area). Can't find it and yet you still write a review? Do you write restaurant reviews the same way? Complaining about other dogs behavior? At a dog park! Come on, snap out of it.

    Pretty Good

    This is my favorite dog park to bring my dog to. There's water (except in winter), and there are also poop clean-up stations. For the most part the other owners who visit are friendly and responsible. As with anything, though, you occasionally will run into irresponsible owners.
    The grounds are nice, and the fence is well-maintained. Overall, 4/5 bones.

    Dog owner

    Nice sized park but irresponsible owners make it dangerous for dogs. My young dog was attacked by a boxer mix on our second visit while the owner chit chatted at a picnic table. he was facing the opposite direction. I broke up the fight and had to let the boxer X owner know that it even happened. Needless to say, this is a place to avoid. Sad really.

    Dog owners

    Best dog park in Spokane by far. The only times there isn't running water is in the winter when they have to turn the water off of course, so I don't know what people are talking about with it having no water. Can get muddy, but what would you expect from a dog park that isn't all grass?

    A great dog park - where did the others reviewers go?

    This park is just off I-90, on the north side of the road near Cabella's. It is very large, with treed and open areas, a huge parking lot, water (in warmer months), washrooms and covered picnic tables. It's a former highway rest stop and has retained those amenities.
    No mud, rockslides (no rock outcroppings at all), trash or other problems mentioned in the other reviews. I don't think they were at this park.
    One suggestion - have WSDOT place a sign along the Interstate, so travelers with dogs know this place exists to give their pets a break from driving.

    Lots of fun and great location

    The dog park on Riverside and A Street (across from the old peoples park) Other than no water for your dog it is a Great place to take you dog. I was disappointed in the trash in the parking lot but a lot of us picked it up and packed it out. Not a dog problem but a people problem. They have a small dog area and a large dog area. both are fenced in. what fun and social experience for them.

    Needs water

    A decent size area for both small dogs and separate larger area for larger dogs. The smaller dog area could use more trees and a defined walking path. The larger area is great, although the one path that leads up is blocked by a rock slide. Dogs enjoyed it, but it was difficult for human to climb through.

    Both areas need a water source. Outsiders need to realize that they need to have water in hand when visiting this park.

    The park was easy to find. It is located off of Riverside Avenue and A street, Spokane, WA.

    We had a chance to visit this park on 7/22/2012.

    What title?

    This park is nothing but MUD. I do NOT recommend it! You have to bring your own water. The best park to take a dog to is Mission Park in Spokane Valley. Has a fountain for dogs to drink from. But if your dog is off leash, you run a risk of trouble. Also not fenced so must closely watch dog.
