Wag! Walkers know Pico-Union

Pico Union is located just across the Harbor Freeway to the west of central Los Angeles and the downtown core. This busy district has lots of commercial activity and residential housing. Approximately 40,000 people call this neighborhood home and enjoy the proximity to downtown Los Angeles and all the amenities of the large urban center as well as many facilities and services in their neighborhood. Main arteries in Pico-Union that are lined with schools, a library, multiple shops, restaurants, and other businesses include Venice Boulevard, Hoover Street, Washington Boulevard, and Union Avenue. Establishments in Pico-Union are well distributed and easily accessible on foot for most area residents. Pet owners in the community can enjoy taking their dogs along busy thoroughfares to take in the activity and shop.

The weather is amenable to walking in this part of Los Angeles with mild winters and lots of sunny weather. You'll generally find yourself enjoying the sun on your daily outing. 

What is the terrain like in Pico-Union?

Pico Union is bounded by Olympic Boulevard on the north, the Harbor Freeway on the east, the Santa Monica Freeway on the south, and Hoover Street on the west. These two freeways and main roads along with the main thoroughfares cutting through the community in all directions mean that on foot travel in this neighborhood will encounter plenty of traffic and busy roads require crossing at designated pedestrian crossings. 

Although there are many single family homes in this neighborhood, walk up apartments, complexes, and condominiums are found on most residential streets. The area has some inclines, although it is not particularly hilly, and roads are relatively level. This well-developed community has sidewalks for pedestrians and residential properties are often on higher ground than street level with retaining walls along walkways. Natural landscaping in this central urban neighborhood is not as prevalent as in some Los Angeles neighborhoods, however, most residential properties have trees, maintained lawns, and gardens.

How many greenways are there in Pico-Union?

This central urban area has some green spaces of its own. Hope and Peace Park provides basketball courts for area youth, and the small triangular shaped Terrace Park is located where 14th Street, Bonnie Brae Street, and Alvarado Terrace roads form a triangular shaped green space with paved pathways, lawns, and trees that provide a shady spot to rest with your dog on a hot summer hike through Pico-Union. 

Toberman Park features indoor recreational facilities and provides barbecue pits and picnic tables with trees and green spaces to enjoy with your pooch. Pico Union Vest Pocket Park has a children's playground and picnic tables, trees, and lawns. 

Residents looking for long greenways to hike with their dogs may need to travel north to the mountains where there are hundreds of acres of natural space and miles of hiking trails for dogs and owners to explore on foot. Be prepared for climbs in these natural areas and terrain that requires proper footwear.
