Just as much as we love getting out of the house to socialize, so do our furry friends. When living in the city, it can be hard to get your pup out for the exercise it needs to stay happy and healthy. Thankfully, there are plenty of dog parks near One Museum Square where you can take your dog to make friends and burn off some energy. Plus, this can be a great opportunity for you to get out and explore the neighborhood near Mid Wilshire, and maybe run into some neighbors out with their pets as well. Here are the 7 best dog parks in Los Angeles.
Lake Hollywood Park
First on the list for the 7 best dog parks in Los Angeles is just below one of LA’s most famous attractions. For a park with lots of furry friends, as well as a scenic view of the iconic Hollywood Sign, head to Lake Hollywood Park. This location features a large open grass area where your dog can frolic while you relax on a blanket. You’re guaranteed to run into other dog owners who are looking to keep their dogs active while getting some time to relax.
This spot is most popular on the weekends, so be prepared to walk a bit from your parking spot. Once you arrive, grab a seat in the grass and relax with a snack or a nice read. Your dog will have no trouble entertaining themselves with the new friends they’ll find here. Take a picture with you, your dog, and the Hollywood sign! What better way to enjoy one of the best dog parks in Los Angeles.
Silver Lake Dog Park
Whether you’re looking to get in some movement yourself, or again let your dog loose to socialize, head to Silver Lake’s public park near the reservoir. If you are looking to get some exercise in too, take a walk around the reservoir with your dog, and enjoy the scenic architecture surrounding the area.
We recommend taking a fellow dog owner with you for some casual conversation as you make your way around the neighborhood. Once you’ve made it to the dog park, let your pup loose to make friends while you catch your breath. If you work up an appetite, there are plenty of dog-friendly cafes nearby where you can grab a bite.
Harold and Henry Park
A short drive away and just south of One Museum Square apartments is the Harold and Henry Park. This family-friendly spot provides the perfect grassy area to let your pet explore. Everyone knows that pets love kids, so let your pup socialize with furry friends and kids playing at the park! To make a trip out of visiting this dog park, bring along a fresh picnic basket to enjoy at the tables while your pup plays. Don’t forget to bring a snack and some water for your pet too; they might work up an appetite! This park is not fenced in, so be sure to keep track of your pup as you enjoy your food.
Robert Burns Park
For a similar experience to the Harold and Henry Park, head to another dog park near you just above your luxury apartments in Larchmont Village, the Robert Burns Park. This park also has a play area, making it very family-friendly, as well as covered picnic areas. Covered areas let your pup out for exercise in the winter months, as you’re protected from the weather. Don’t forget to bring a towel when you leave your apartment because your pup might make a mess!
