Hermon Dog Park is an off-leash park in Northeast Los Angeles, just across the Arroyo Seco from Highland Park. It was founded in 2005 by a group of dedicated community members and the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. Hermon Dog Park is free of charge and is open to the public every day from dawn until dusk.
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. Scoopers and biodegradable doggie waste bags are available. For safety, dogs must be vaccinated and spayed or neutered and food is not allowed in the Dog Park. (For complete rules see: City of LA list)
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.
Our Mission: “The Friends of Hermon Dog Park exists to enhance the Hermon Dog Park, keep its environment safe and healthy, teach responsible pet ownership and further humane education, encourage dog training efforts, organize pet adoption events, and help other organizations that provide for the care of animals.”
Ongoing programs presented by the Friends of Hermon Dog Park include pet adoption fairs, spay/neuter events, vaccination and microchipping clinics, and dog park imrovement and cleanup projects.
