The residential community of South Carthay is located in Central Los Angeles, California. This unique neighborhood has been designated with a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone to protect the character and historic buildings that sit within. It is surrounded by the main thoroughfares of La Cienega Boulevard to the west and Pico Boulevard to the south. These busy streets are lined with retail shops, services, ad restaurants. Because this is not a large community, residents can easily walk to these businesses for a bite to eat or to visit a shop. Residents that choose to walk in the neighborhood usually find that they enjoy the warm, sunny weather, with little rain in Central Los Angeles. Winters are mild and summers are quite hot. On very hot summer days, walking may be more enjoyable in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler, especially for your hairy hound! Pack some water for your trip to stay hydrated and healthy.
This small community does not have greenways or parks located within it, but there are parks adjacent to South Carthay in neighboring areas.

The surrounding areas have several dog parks just a short drive away where you can take your dog for some off-leash fun. If you are looking for some serious hiking and adventures on foot with your intrepid canine companion, a short drive to the foothills, mountains, and wilderness areas north of Los Angeles provide many miles of hiking trails you can explore with your pup. Keep your dog leashed in these natural areas to protect local flora and fauna and to keep your dog safe from local critters.
