Los Feliz is located in the north-central region of Los Angeles, in East Hollywood. There are many residential areas, back from the main arteries, with single family, and multi-family dwellings and apartments. The Los Feliz Village, in the southern part of the community, is where most of the commercial ventures in the area are established. Commercial areas have clothing, vintage shops, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, and a variety of stores and services for locals to access via a short drive or on foot. Los Feliz also provides residents with an active nightlife scene with bars and clubs with live entertainment to enjoy right in the neighborhood. Some eateries with outdoor seating may allow dogs to join their owner on patios, so check to see if you can bring your pup with you on a warm sunny day to sit on the patio. There are plenty of warm sunny days in Los Angeles year round, and rain and cold days are infrequent in Los Feliz.
There are several greenways, parks, and gardens in the Los Feliz area and stairways to negotiate changes in elevation along greenways. The Hoover Walk Stairs feature colorful murals and are a favorite destination of locals walking their pets, especially with children. Los Feliz and area is famous for its hidden and exposed stairs, including the South Deloz/Hollyvista Stairs. Explore greenways in the area to locate these unique features
Sunnynook River Park, also located in the community, is a riverside greenspace with bike and pedestrian paths and plenty of natural flora and fauna native to the areas. Large Griffith Park located just north of Los Feliz has acres of greenways and trails to explore with your dog. Keep your dog leashed in the area so as not to disturb local critters, or lose an excited dog exploring the park. If you want to enjoy some off-leash time with your dog, the Silver Lake Dog Park is located a short drive to the southeast, and has a safe enclosed area for your dog to romp!
