Hale Park Off-Leash Area


Hale Park Off-Leash Dog Park

Hale Park Off-Leash Park Preview/Location/Rules
The Hale Park Off-Leash Dog Park is now open!

HALE PARK IS OPEN! Hours are 6 am – 10 pm. Please note that some minor construction, including fencing, is still going on. Hale Park is the first public off leash area (OLA) in the Greater Wenatchee area. This 2+ acre park was designed with hours of research into the best of the best dog parks in the United States and with hard-earned input from the community. It was funded by donations small and large, and would not have been possible without the work and determination of many individuals.

Phase one (2017) includes a fenced area including trees and stone benches and a lighted parking lot. Phase two will complete a beautiful entrance featuring a bronze Labrador retriever sculpture by Georgia Gerber. Later work will include restrooms.

See the interactive Google map to find your way (enter via Worthen Street). During your visit, please read and obey all listed guidelines so that we can keep this park pristine and pleasant.
Any volunteers who would like to donate their time to cleanup crew (monitoring for litter and poo, filling in holes) are welcome to contact FIDO!
