Genesee is a permanent off-leash area that was created in 1999.
Located in Southeast Seattle just south of the Stan Sayres Hydroplane Pits and just west of Seward Park on Lake Washington, the Genesee off-leash area is 2.5 acres and is completely fenced with two double-gated entrances. It is easy to keep an eye on dogs as the area is relatively flat and secure. The center 2 acres of the off-leash area is covered in gravel, which makes it mud-free in the winter. The park also has a doggie drinking fountain.
