Bell Gardens is a suburban city of Los Angeles County that rests on the corner of the convergence of the Rio Hondo and the Los Angeles River. The small city has only been a city since the 1960s, although the oldest home in the area was built in 1818. Although the area has changed quite a bit since then, what hasn't changed is the love and care the city shows for its four-legged residents.

The Bell Gardens John Anson Ford Park is the largest park in the city,  located right on the northern side of the Rio Hondo. The park has something for every person and leashed pup, including multiple fenced-in soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, a pond for fishing, a paved path that winds through the park over 1.7 miles, pavilions and gazebos, lots of shady trees, and open space. Fido will go wild at the park and won't know what to do first.

In the northern part of the city is another dog-friendly park known as the Bell Gardens Veterans Park. This green space also has a lot of open areas, spiraling walkways, lots of trees for shade, picnic areas and benches, and an enclosed baseball diamond that allows dogs when no teams are playing. Additional amenities available for humans and leashed pups include water fountains, clean-up stations, nighttime lights, and trash bins.

Bell Gardens also has one dedicated animal hospital, and more plans to expand the public parks that already exist to create an even more dog-friendly area for Fido to enjoy.
