Strawberry Hill Dog Park is a wooded, 5-acre forest glade inside Strawberry Hill Park, adjacent to a playground and a skateboard park, that has been designated for off-leash canine recreation. The dog park is centrally located on Bainbridge Island, less than 3 miles from the Bainbridge Ferry Terminal, and exclusively dedicated to dogs’ off-leash exercise and socialization.
The dog park entrance features direct parking lot access. It includes several amenities, including a large “air lock” entrance for dogs to acclimate to the park’s surroundings and a dog washing station with a hose and spray wand to clean pets before leaving the park. In addition, there is a separately fenced, small dog park area, as well as two training bays for private or small group use. Training bays are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Visitors will find park benches, a perimeter walking trail, auto-fill water bowls, and free dog waste collection bags and receptacles.
The park is open from dawn to dusk, seven days a week, to well-behaved dogs six months or older who have had their vaccinations. Owners are encouraged to be attentive to their dog(s) during their park visit. Dog owners should be able to locate their dog(s) at all times. Groups of dogs behave differently than a single dog, and dog owners are asked to monitor dog interactions to ensure the safety of all park users.

Access is limited to walk-in use from the Parking area at the bottom of the hill. Users can follow the signs to this 1-acre site, with a grassy meadow and wooded trails. The site is open year-round. However, preparing for soggy, wet conditions during the wet season would be best.

Dog waste can spread diseases to other dogs, humans, and wildlife.
As meat-eaters, dogs (like humans) can produce waste that can contain harmful E. coli, roundworm, samonella, and giardia

Dog waste is not fertilizer.
Unlike waste from plant-eaters, such as horse manure, dog waste is classified as a pollutant by the EPA.

Dog waste is the third leading cause of water contamination.
