SDOT has reinstated vehicle access at the Golden Gardens off-leash area for those with disability placards.
While Golden Gardens Drive remains closed, the department has changed the street signs to allow driving access from NW 85th St to the off-leash dog park—but only for those displaying disability placards (see map below).
“As we’ve work through traffic-related changes with the affected community, we’ve heard the importance of improving access for people with disabilities to the dog park,” SDOT said in a letter to residents. “Please be respectful and keep the parking lot open for those with limited mobility who wish to exercise their pets.”
The speed limit for those driving to the dog park is 10mph; SDOT asks that drivers be mindful and watch out for bikers and pedestrians.
SDOT also said they’re “considering changes to travel patterns related to restricting driving on Golden Gardens Dr and possible modification.” We’ll update if they make further changes.
