Dog Parks in Los Angeles

Dog Parks in Los Angeles should be more plentiful.  With city restrictions and codes, traffic and the bustle - it's hard to know where to walk man's best friend.  I generally get up at 6am every morning (7am on a lazy day) and walk Panda for an hour.  In Beverly Hills the walking areas are really amazing and there's a little (unofficial) park at Doheny and Santa Monica Boulevards where dogs can roam at least for a little while. 

Here are two of my top favorites for dog parks in Los Angeles.  

Long Beach Dog Park
Santa Monica Dog Park

I really love Rosalynd's Dog beach in Long Beach because many dogs love the open air, fresh water smell, and the chase of the foam as it crashes into the shore.   Panda isn't quite brave (or big) enough to get in the water but it's fun to watch her chase the surf.

Having lived in Los Angeles for 15 years and knowing the city as I do, it's definitely an important element to the community.     I hope you find a great little place for you and your "best friend."
