Cedar River TrailRENTON: Summer is just around the corner and Renton’s Parks and Trails will become more popular as the weather improves. Take some time this summer to visit one of Renton’s parks, trails or natural areas such as the Black River Riparian Forest. A few friendly reminders about using Renton’s parks and trails are listed below.

  • Dogs are not allowed at Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park or Kennydale Beach Park. At all other parks, dogs must be on an eight-foot leash. An off-leash dog park is located along the Cedar River across from the Renton Community Center. Pet owners please obey the scoop law.
  • The speed limit on a portion of the Cedar River Trail was reduced in 2011 and there are dismount zones. Please obey all signage.

Renton’s park maintenance staff maintain the facilities and act as customer service representatives to the public. Comments, suggestions and questions are always welcome. Trail Rangers will be on the Cedar River Trail from June through September to assist with trail education and report unwanted activity. If suspicious or dangerous behavior is noticed, please dial 9-1-1.
