According to a news release, the Seattle Conservation Corps will replace decaying wood chips with a gravel surfacing as part of the maintenance project. Additionally, the big leaf maple in the center of the park will be pruned.

Kinnear OLA is situated on the lower hillside of Kinnear Park, 899 Olympic Place. The nearest OLA’s are Denny Park, 100 Dexter Ave. N; Regrade Park, 2251 Third Ave.; and Magnolia Manor, 3500 28th Ave. W. Go to for other off-leash area opportunities.

The project is funded through Seattle Park District Maintaining Parks and Facilities funding initiatives, which provided $120,000 in 2021 to improve dog off-leash areas throughout Seattle.
