The north end of Luther Bank Park offers a fenced off-leash dog area. This space, bordered on one end by shoreline is a great place to let the dogs run, play, and swim. It is a short walk from the north parking lot. City of Mercer Island Code states that dogs may be off-leash but under control by using voice or signal commands within the fenced area.
