Libbit Park is a public park in Encino, California. There are parking spaces for vehicles on the street next to the park. There is a two-hour time limit to parking during the hours of 8 AM to 6 PM. From 10 PM to 6 AM it is strictly a no parking zone.
The Libbit Park is not an official off-leash dog park but is used as such by local pet owners. It is classed as a dog-friendly park by the local authorities. Owners risk facing a fine of $250 if found to be violating the leash rules but it is still a busy off-leash park and very popular.
The park area, an elongated rectangle, is not fully enclosed. It is bordered on one side by wooden trunk fencing. This part of the park runs next to a road. Owners should be aware dogs can easily escape through this fencing and need to have good voice control over their pet. Squirrels can be a major distraction. The opposite side of the park is lined with chain link fencing which separates it from a stretch of overgrown waste ground. There is no special zone cordoned off for small dogs.
The park is surfaced with well maintained grass. There are plenty of mature trees around the perimeter and throughout the grassed area. Benches have been placed under the trees. There are several poop bag stations at different points throughout the park and these normally hold a good supply of bags. It is always recommended that owners using the facility carry a few extra on their person in case of stock depletion. Owners are obliged to clean up any faecal matter produced by their dogs and dispose of it responsibly in the containers provided. There are also donated stocks of tennis balls at the poop bag dispensing stations. There is a dog friendly water fountain installed in the park.
