While you are here, don't fur-get to visit one of the most beautiful parks in the area called The Van Nuys Recreation Area, where leashed dogs are welcome.
If you are in the mood for something a little bit different than just hanging out in an enclosed park, then you absolutely have to check out the Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park. Your pooch is very welcome to join you on the trails of the park where you both will enjoy the marvelous views of the ocean and downtown Los Angeles. There is a paved path that you can walk on and there are waste stations along many of the trails. If you decide to visit the park, know that there are no bathrooms, and you'll need to bring your own water with you.
