Dog Friendly Greenbank Farm

One of the largest off-leash dog areas on Whidbey Island is at Greenbank Farm, just north of the town of Greenbank, about halfway down Whidbey Island.  Greenbank Farm is owned by the Port of Coupeville, and is open to the public. The off-leash park area is best accessed from the parking loop next to Hwy 525; entry here will keep your dog clear of the active farm area and ducks and livestock.  This is also a convenient place to get access to the many walking trails that wind through the meadow and forest areas of the farm.

Because Greenbank Farm is an active commercial farm, and the dog park area is not fully fenced, you will want to keep good control of your dog.  Parts of the pasture are leased to local farmers, so please don’t trespass on the areas where livestock is kept,or where crops are being grown. 

Greenbank Farm is also a fun place to visit without your pet.  The entrance off Wonn Road will take you to a large parking area where you will find art galleries, a winery, a cafe, and various markets during the year.  It is a nice spot to stop for a snack, or to stretch your legs, if you are traversing the length of Whidbey Island.

About halhovey

A transplant from the east coast, I spent many years living in the deserts of Arizona and Nevada before finally finding a little piece of paradise on Whidbey Island that I call home. This is where I chose to raise my kids, set down roots, and eventually retire. In my blog I hope to share timely information and statitistics about our local real estate market, as well as a few of the people, places and homes around Whidbey Island that I find special, or interesting.
