For people who love numbers:
Some of the numbers above were rounded. The full numbers in order for Queen Anne are: .124 acres to 40.45 acres, .307% space to dogs vs total park space, estimated 8,000 very low as it’s based on national average of dogs per household which is higher in Seattle, and lastly, still one dog park (though we would argue that it’s barely worth counting). In Seattle: 29.129 acres of dog parks to 5,899.269 acres (best number based on SPR website, though some numbers are missing, including the .54 acre Peace Park), the number 150,000 was based on what SPR claims (though this number seems very low if you look at the national average of dogs per household, the number of households and the fact that we are above the national average in dog ownership), the 29 acres is 29.5 acres.
