West Carson is located in southern Los Angeles, California. It is roughly 15 miles from both the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the downtown area. The neighborhood has both commercial and residential areas. The commercial areas are largely made of standalone, single-family houses while there is also a mobile home community in the southwest corner of the neighborhood. The residential area is home to chain restaurants, public schools, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, and grocery stores. Additionally, there are several local pet groomers nearby to keep your pet clean and looking nice.

West Carson and the rest of Los Angeles has an extremely mild climate. Los Angeles is a drier city, but most of the rainfall will happen in the winter months. Temperatures range from 59 - 76°F, so you will likely have many days with the perfect walking weather. Just be sure to grab a light sweater, as it does get chilly during the evenings!

Like most of Los Angeles, West Carson is on a slight incline. The northern part of the neighborhood is at a slightly higher elevation and as you move south, you will experience a slight decline. The neighborhood is also largely artificial, with very little greenery. Some of the residential neighborhoods have maintained sidewalks, but unfortunately, there are few public grassy areas throughout West Carson. The more commercial areas also have maintained sidewalks, but few grassy places to utilize. You may need to search a bit more thoroughly for such terrain.

The boundaries of West Carson include West Del Amo Boulevard to the north, Harbor Freeway and Transit Way to the east, West Lomitas Boulevard to the south, and Normandie Avenue to the west. Beyond those major roadways, West Carson Street, Sepulveda Boulevard, and South Vermont Avenue are other major thoroughfares that may have more congestion and may be more high-risk for pedestrians.

Unfortunately, there are no greenways in the West Carson neighborhood. As previously mentioned, there are also few public grassy areas in either commercial or residential areas of the small neighborhood, which means that you may have to venture outside of the neighborhood to find adequate areas for running and playing with your pup.

Luckily, there are several public parks within walking distance of West Carson. These include Carson Park, Veterans Park, Normandale Recreation Center and its greenway, Mulligan Family Fun Center and its greenway, Harbor City Park, Carriage Crest Park, and Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park. Ken Malloy Harbor Regional Park is the largest of these greenways and is home to plenty of walking trails, a lake, and a golf course. 

As you visit any of these local areas, remember to observe local leash laws and be courteous to other residents and visitors while you play with your pup.
