The city of Bothell is debuting its first Pop-up Dog Park, which is located at Park at Bothell Landing (9919 NE 180th St.), which will be open through Sept. 15.

Open from dawn to dusk, the 25,000-plus square-foot fenced park features separate entrances and spaces for small and large dogs, waste and water stations, and seating for pet owners.

The project is in response to growing demand for accessible, safe and clean spaces for pets and their owners to get exercise and socialize with others, according to a press release. With a growing population, the city wants to hear from residents about the need and desire for a more permanent off-leash dog park. This survey, which takes only a couple of minutes to complete, is a chance for people to take part in the planning process, the release states.

The pop-up will culminate in a community Pet Parade from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 15 at Bothell Landing, where pets and their owners will strut their stuff and compete for prizes. Registration for the Pet Parade is now open.

Major partners who are making the project possible are Pet Pros, WhatsSup Stand-up Paddle and Surf, and Twin Pines Animal Hospital.
