La Playa is an upscale neighborhood located on the peninsula on San Diego’s west side. It is about a 20-minute commute to the downtown business district. There is a small commercial area on the northwest side with a grocery store and coffee shop that is convenient and easily reached on foot for La Playa residents and their four-legged friends. The commercial and entertainment district to the north can also be reached by pedestrians and is a walkable area with many restaurants, bars, and shops, including the Seaside Pho and Grill, which will allow your dog to join you in their outdoor seating area. 


Walking in the coastal community in San Diego, you and your dog will enjoy beautiful, sunny, warm weather with cool breezes off the sea. In the spring, there is some rain, clouds, and fog in the area. Winters are mild with temperatures above freezing and frigid weather does not prevent you and your dog from venturing out regularly.

La Playa is located on the San Diego Bay on the western side of the city. The bay provides waterfront property along the east side, there is a naval base located on the southern border, the Wooded Area neighborhood on the west, and the Yacht Club Condos to the north. This area is mostly residential, with single-family, high end detached homes and some expensive bayfront homes with private piers on the water. There is also a yacht club with a marina extending into the water. 


The neighborhood is hilly with more gentle inclines in the main part of the neighborhood and slopes steeply towards the water on the east. Private properties are well landscaped and maintained with ornamental trees, flowering shrubs and gardens, and drought tolerant plantings. 


Sidewalks in the neighborhood run along streets and provide safe, separate walkways for people and pets. Some sidewalks have colored bricks that add character and enhance the neighborhood.

The Bessemer Path runs along the bayshore for 2.5 miles and provides views of the water, beautiful mansions, and large pepper, pine, and eucalyptus trees along the way.  Dogs are not permitted on this bayshore path between 9AM and 5PM, so if you and your pup want to enjoy this trail, get up early or wait until evening.

Shoreline Park is located on the peninsula that extends off the north side of the region. This park has a pier for fishing, a boat launch, hiking and biking paths, gazebos, picnic tables, concessions, restrooms, and public art. There is also a public beach. Dogs are not permitted on the beach, but can access the park on a leash.

The Point Loma Community Park is a few blocks to the northwest and has athletic fields and facilities with paved walking paths around the park where you can walk with your dog.
