West hollywood dog park
The west hollywood dog park is a public dog park in west Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, in the United States, owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles, in the northwest corner of Hollywood Park. It was opened on June 23, 2014. The west hollywood dog park was designed by the landscape architecture firm of Arata Isozaki, who also designed the Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois, and the High Line. It was designed to be a "doggie playground," containing grass, gravel, a dog bath area, and a shaded shelter.
The park is located in a small triangle on the west side of the street at Highland Avenue and Fountain Avenue. It is a popular dog walking and jogging area.
The park's design is a "play park" for dogs, featuring a central grassy area and an elevated dog bath area. It contains five rectangular kennels, each holding up to 20 dogs. Three of the kennels have a ramp access for easier access for dogs with mobility issues. The dog park is located in the northeast corner of Hollywood Park, near the intersection of Fountain Avenue and Highland Avenue. It is bordered on its north, east, and west sides by Hollywood Park, with a chain-link fence between the park and the park. It has two picnic areas, a bathroom, and a grassy play area. The main feature of the park is the dog bath area, which consists of a large sandbox, two kennels for holding up to 20 dogs, and a dog-washing station with showers and a hose. The park also contains a fenced-in grassy play area.
The dog park has benches for the use of park visitors. A children's play area, also designed by Arata Isozaki, is located on the northwest side of the park. The children's play area contains a wooden slide, a sand box, and a climbing structure with wooden platforms and a tunnel that children can use to play. The park has a shelter, a bathroom, and a small lawn where visitors can sit. The park was designed to be a dog park that allows dogs of all sizes to socialize with each other. It is not intended to be a competition for dog owners.
The dog park was designed by the landscape architecture firm of Arata Isozaki, who also designed the Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois, and the High Line. In February 2009, the Department of City Planning selected a design by a team of architects and landscape architects to design the park. The design team was led by Arata Isozaki and included landscape architect Tom Hoving, urban designer and principal of the Arata Isozaki and Associates firm, civil engineer David H. Feldman, landscape architect and principal of the Arata Isozaki and Associates firm, and landscape architect James W. Moore of the Arata Isozaki and Associates firm.
Construction of the park began on May 20, 2013, and was completed by January 2014. The park opened to the public on June 23, 2014. Its opening was attended by L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Councilmember David Ryu, City Councilmember Wendy Greuel, and Doggie Dads.
The west hollywood dog park was funded by a $3.9 million grant awarded to the City of Los Angeles on December 19, 2013, by Los Angeles City Council. The grant was awarded as part of the Parks, Trails, Greenbelts and Open Space Bond Act of 2013. The $3.9 million grant is split between the Department of Parks and Recreation and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The grant was awarded after a request by L.A. City Councilmember and chair of the City Council's Public Works Committee David Ryu to the council. According to Ryu, the city needed a dog park that was large enough to accommodate 1,000 dogs. Ryu estimated that a dog park located at Hollywood Park could serve 3,000 to 4,000 dogs, but the new west hollywood dog park could accommodate as many as 10,000 dogs.
On January 26, 2014, the Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution accepting an $800,000 design contract with Arata Isozaki and Associates, which had been recommended by the City of Los Angeles on January 23, 2014. The resolution also accepted a $3.1 million design contract with AECOM, which had been recommended by the City of Los Angeles on January 21, 2014. On February 3, 2014, the city announced that it would accept the Arata Isozaki and Associates design for the park, as well as a design contract with AECOM.
