Playa del Rey is a beachfront community in the greater Los Angeles area. Although small in size, it is full of all the SoCal favorites -- sun, sand, and surf. Located only 20 miles outside of Downtown Los Angeles, this town is close to world class restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.
Besides all the sun and fun, Playa del Rey also has some pet friendly restaurants. Book a dinner date with your four legged BFF and head out on the town. Playa Provisions is a unique cluster of stores and eateries. Small Batch serves ice cream, Grain sells spirits, and Dockside has fresh seafood on the menu. All offer outdoor tables, so once you get your food, you can sit right next to your pup.
For a little pick-me-up, stop by Tanners Coffee. Besides having a delicious assortment of coffees, teas, and other drinks, they also serve mouthwatering wraps and sandwiches. This dog friendly establishment is also only two blocks from the ocean. Del Rey Deli Co. has two outdoor tables that accommodate furry patrons. Munch on a Caprese Sandwich while your pooch enjoys the salty ocean air.
After you grab a bite to eat, head over to the Ballona Freshwater Marsh. Take your pup for a couple laps around the trail. He’s sure to have a tail waggin’ time!
Oberrieder Dog Park is located in the Loyola Village neighborhood of nearby Playa Vista. Just a quick two mile trip from Playa de Rey, this dog park is waiting for your four legged pal. She can check her leash at the gate and cruise around carefree. There is plenty of space for romping and wrestling, as well as a good old fashioned game of fetch. If your little pup doesn’t like to run with the big dogs, just head over to the small dog section. Drinking fountains and benches are provided. This park is also only 10 minutes from LAX, so if your pooch is just getting off a long flight, bring her by for some exercise. If your pup is a bit less social, try Fountain Park. This on-leash park has a beautiful water fountain in the middle of the park.
