A unanimous vote by the West Hollywood City Council will allow your fur baby to enjoy the freedom of being off-leash in a specific area of Plummer Park.
The council approved the preliminary plan for a pilot program on Jan.19 as part of the city’s long-term plans to redevelop Plummer Park. Staff will need to return to council with a proposal that includes a site plan and budget for final consideration.
Mayor Pro Tempore Lauren Meister characterized the park as a backyard for nearby residents, most of whom live in apartments. She said that many people already allowed their dogs to use the park off-leash, despite it being illegal.
Once established, the new off-leash play area in Plummer Park would become the city’s third dog park – and the only one on the east side. Both the West Hollywood Park Dog Park on San Vicente Boulevard and the William S. Hart Dog Park on De Longpre Avenue offers off-leash spaces for canines to play.
Completed in 1938, Plummer Park and its Great Hall/Long Hall reveal dynamic layers in West Hollywood’s development and identity, from its New Deal origins to its role in LGBTQ community organizing.
On May 18th, 2020, the City of West Hollywood City Council unanimously agreed to expedite the construction project of Phase II of the West Hollywood Park Master Plan.
Upon completion of Phase II, West Hollywood Park will feature — an Aquatic and Recreation Center, two off-leash dog parks, one each for small and large dogs, expanded green spaces with landscaping, picnic areas, and public art, updated children’s playgrounds and an AIDS Monument.
