Dog park up­date: The city of Lyn­nwood con­tin­ues to plan for its first off-leash dog park. The lo­ca­tion is the north­west cor­ner of Lyn­ndale Park along Olympic View Drive. The City Coun­cil now has to re­view a pro­posed con­struc­tion bud­get of about $50,000. The plan calls for a .6-acre space, 9 park­ing stalls,

benches, a wa­ter sta­tion, a kiosk built by an Ea­gle Scout can­di­date and agility equip­ment. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to take six months. The money for the project is com­ing from real es­tate taxes, city doc­u­ments show. Lyn­nwood has been con­sid­er­ing a park of this kind to pro­vide a “highly de­manded ser­vice” for more than a decade, doc­u­ments show.
