Located On L.A. Live Way, just west of the parking garage behind Regal Cinemas, L.A. Live Off-Leash Dog Park is a fenced-in landscaped park fitted with benches and water fountains. There are designated areas for both small and large dogs to exercise with similar sized friends, and both sections are stocked with waste bags. The park is patrolled by L.A.

Art District Park

Arts District Dog Park 1004 E 4th Street Los Angeles, CA 90013

In 2009, Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association (LARABA) launched the Arts District Dog Park Park project. True to its creative surroundings, the park is punctuated with colorful murals from LA artist Septerhed. The parks includes a dog water fountain, separate small dog area, shade trees, benches for humans, a community bulletin board, pooper-scoopers, and trash bins. Not run or supported by the City of Los Angeles, this volunteer-run park is a true example of community spirit. While the land is being generously loaned to the community, there are yearly operational costs to cover. You can help keep the Arts District Dog Park open to the public with a donation to cover operational costs.

Spring Street Park

A former parking lot has been transformed to a lawn, playground, and seating area nestled in the shadow of luxury lofts. This small park allows dogs to fun free, and humans a chance to relax and linger in this fascinating neighborhood. The park also has a chilren’s play area and concentric wlkways circling the lawn. The park provides security and is cleaned every morning. Make sure you observe the poo poo rules-they can be quite strict!
