Leimert Park is a carefully planned and laid out neighborhood with main thoroughfares and residential streets deviating from traditional grid patterns that are prevalent in most urban neighborhoods. Streets were designed to minimize traffic near schools and churches and pedestrian ways are in place, connecting areas of the neighborhood. This area features beautiful Spanish Colonial architecture in both its single family homes and multi story apartment buildings and is a popular community for sightseeing on foot. The Los Angeles Metro Light Rail Line will have a station in the area that is part of a walkable corridor in the neighborhood to make transit and foot travel more convenient. This neighborhood is relatively flat and along with shady roads and careful routing of traffic, walking with your dog in the neighborhood is a easy and stress free. Remember to keep your dog leashed and be prepared to clean up after him to keep your dog safe and the area pleasant for others.
Leimert Plaza Park is located on the south end of the community and has open green space, trees, benches, picnic tables, and a fountain for park goers and their leashed dogs to enjoy. This park also provides concerts and other events for interested parties. Accessibility depends on the nature of the event, so check online first to see if you can bring your dog.
Nearby shopping, retail, cafes, and eateries can be enjoyed near the park and are designed to be accessible to park users on foot. There is also a small green space at Stocker Plaza with trees and open areas. Many walkways connecting the area, such as Hubert Walk, and sidewalks along residential and thoroughfares are tree lined with green strips separating pedestrians from roadways. These areas can be enjoyed throughout the neighborhood and provide dog owners and their pooches with a greenway experience wherever they are in the area.
