Cedar River Dog Park

1156 South 3rd Street
Renton, WA 98057



We are committed to enriching the quality of life in Renton through the responsible establishment and maintenance of a recreational area where dogs and people can interact in a clean, safe, and pleasant environment. More specifically, our goals are:

 - To promote the health and welfare of companion animals and their owners.

 - To work in close cooperation with the City of Renton to plan, promote, establish, operate, maintain, regulate, police, and otherwise work to create and support a public off-leash dog park in Renton.

 - To view the dog park as a community project in partnership with the City of Renton, local businesses, and area civic organizations that satisfies the needs of dog owners and non-dog owners alike.

About Us:

In 2009, a dedicated group of citizens, working in close cooperation with the City of Renton, embarked on an ambitious plan to build Renton's first and only off-leash dog park. Our non-profit organization is named RUFF, or Renton's Unleashed Furry Friends. With tremendous support from the community, we built the dog park in record time, and it's now open for business!

The Cedar River Dog Park is located on a beautiful city-owned parcel adjacent to the Cedar River Trail, site of the historic Denny-Renton Clay Works. The main portion of the dog park is approximately 3.5 acres, while a separate shy/small dog area measures 65 by 120 feet. Both areas are fully fenced with rustic split rail fencing and wire mesh. The dog park is accessed through gates in an entry paddock.
