If you and your dog are lucky enough to have the day off today, perhaps it’s a good day to check out the newly renovated Laurel Canyon Dog Park (8260 Mulholland Dr, LA, CA 90046), thanks to the efforts of the LA Department of Recreation and Parks, the LA Parks Foundation and City National Bank.
Last week CD4 City Councilmember Nithya Raman and representatives of City National Bank, the LA Parks Foundation and the LA Department of Recreation and Parks cut the ribbon officially re-opening the city’s oldest off-leash dog park.
The newly renovated park now has new benches, a dog wash station and a pergola that provides better shade for dogs and their owners. The enhancements also feature new wheelchair-accessible seating, making it easier for pet owners with disabilities to enjoy the park. Prior to the refurbishment, the Laurel Canyon Dog Park, established in 1988, featured limited shade and seating.
The well-used park needed improvements to better serve the growing number of dogs and their owners who visit the park regularly. City National responded to the needs of the park and provided a significant financial donation to make the renovations happen. The bank has donated more than $320,000 to the LA Parks Foundation since the organization’s inception in 2008.
