Dogs Leashed

Features Birding · Fall Colors · Lake · Spring · Waterfall · Wildlife

Hours: Open half an hour before sunrise, close half an hour after sunset. No swimming for people or pets due to high levels of toxic algae. For dogs, there are three fully fenced areas for off-leash play, including one just for small dogs.

Runner Notes

Flat and well maintained.

Description

Wapato Park is a great place to visit for someone looking for a quick escape or for those wanting to stay for the day. From picnic and playground areas, to the relaxing garden or the lakeside loop, this park is lovely. There is even a waterfall to explore near the entrance.

The lakeside loop is flat and wheelchair accessible from two parking lots. There are two docks where you can stop for bird-watching. The north side of the loop will bring you over a land-bridge, and then around to a playground area. Alternatively, if you veer north you can access the Pipeline Trail (not wheelchair accessible).

See the park's website for event calendar more details.

Flora & Fauna

Many birds, wetland area, lakeside shoreline.
