Hermon Dog Park is an off-leash park adjacent to the historic Arroyo Seco of Northeast Los Angeles. The dog park is supported by the Friends of Hermon Dog Park, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised entirely of volunteers and dependent on donations.
The park has two fenced areas, one for large dogs and one for small, elderly and disabled dogs. Facilities include a double-gated entrance, trees, benches, and water dispensers for the dogs. The surface is decomposed granite, for mud free, easy clean up. Biodegradable doggie waste bags are available in dispensers. Hermon Dog Park is open every day from dawn until dusk.

Especially in the winter months, people ask why the dog park can't have lights so that dogs can romp when owners get home from work. Aside from the budgetary and logistical issues, we also have an agreement with our neighbors who would be affected by the light and noise. In order to get the park built in the first place, we agreed to honor our neighbors' request for daylight hours only. Those of you who need a place to take your dogs after dusk are encouraged to visit Silver Lake Dog Park which is open until 10pm. Thank you for your understanding.
