A press release from the city of Beverly Hills:

The Beverly Hills City Council Tuesday voted to create a half-acre, off-leash dog park on city-owned property in the Entertainment Business District for a trial period.

The dog park would be built on southeast corner of Foothill Road and Alden Drive. 

“This is a great day for Beverly Hills,” said Mayor Lili Bosse. “This is a dog-loving community and a walking community. I am thrilled that there soon will be a destination within walking distance for many residents where dogs can play off leash and dog owners can meet and get to know one another.” 

The new park will be located on a portion of a five-acre site owned by the city. The site is currently occupied by West Coast Arborist, a city vendor, who would be relocated to another location on the same parcel.

The estimated cost of the dog park is approximately $298,000. However, actual costs would be determined by the design of the dog park and the competitive bidding process.  

Residents who wish to make a contribution to support the dog park may do so through the Community Charitable Foundation. For more information or to make a donation, please call the Community Services Office at (310) 285-2536.

Very nice. Every area should have a dog park.

Any idea on timing, in terms of when the dog park will be open for business?
