Dog Areas in Los Angeles Downtown

Downtown LA is perhaps one of the most famous places in the world -- and one of the dog-friendliest!


In the northern downtown area is Alcove Cafe & Bakery. They specialize in classic American fare served at the dog-friendly garden patio seating. You can enjoy a full breakfast menu as well as tasty lunch and dinner options, such as mini crab cakes, chopped salad, tuna melts, burgers, carnitas tacos, and yummy desserts.


To the west, about 10 miles, is Tuk Tuk Thai. This dog-friendly restaurant serves up traditional Thai flavors with a modern flare. Dogs are welcome at outdoor tables. Don't be fooled if no one is sitting outside -- they'll take care of you and Fido out there if you stick your head in the door!


Around 9 miles northwest of downtown is Wattles Garden Park. Leashed dogs are welcome on the grounds of the Wattles Mansion. This is a nice grassy area for dogs.


Or, walk off all those calories at Hermon Dog Park. This off-leash park is adjacent to the historic Arroyo Seco Park in northeast Los Angeles. The park has two fenced areas: one for large dogs and one for small, elderly, and disabled dogs.


Looking for a hike? Nineteen miles west is Canyonback Ridge. This 4.2-mile hike, ascending Canyonback Ridge, has a beautiful view of west LA, Santa Monica Bay, the Santa Monica Mountains, and the Getty Museum.
