Nestled inside of a little valley, you will find one of the most famous neighborhoods in the world, Hollywood, Los Angeles. If any neighborhood would be a dog and dog walker's paradise, this would be it. A plethora of wealthy stars and other famous people call this community home so there are plenty of businesses to cater to your pup's every need. You won’t go more than a few blocks in any direction when looking for their favorite treat and there are plenty of vets and groomers to choose from as well.
Taking a walk in the neighborhood can be a treat for both owner and pet, with some great food choices and lots of things to see along the way such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame and an art park. The average temperature in Hollywood is moderate, so you can walk all year long with only an occasional rainy day.
The central part of Hollywood is flat which makes it perfect if you and your four-footed butter ball are just starting out with exercise. You can take a fairly long but easy walk before you come across any real terrain changes. The flat terrain of Hollywood may not be to your liking if you are fit and your pup is wound too tight, but you will not have to go too far to find hills that may be more to your liking. Just outside is plenty of hills and trails to challenge you and wear your overactive dog out a bit.
The terrain inside Hollywood is mostly urban which means concrete sidewalks with little in the way of grass or trees for your dog to explore. If that does not bother you, then there are plenty of directions to go during your daily outing with your canine companion at your side.
There are not a lot of useable greenways inside the Hollywood neighborhood, only a few smaller parks. One area of note is the Lemon Grove Recreation Center which is situated along Highway 101 towards the south and east of the neighborhood. This park has a walking path and a bit of grass and trees that may be a welcome respite on hot summer days.
Barnsdall Art Park has places to walk in the grass and among the trees with a bit of elevation. Dogs are allowed in the park area of the recreation center, as long as they are on a leash. De Longpre Park has grass, trees, and a playground, and is in the center of Hollywood. If none of the parks in Hollywood suit your needs, there are several greenways just outside of the area that offer extensive walking trails such as Wattles Garden Park and Griffith Park if you require some alternatives.
