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.

"ARE YOU MY MOTHER?"
We are excited to announce that our master of ceremonies will be the talented actor/writer/comedian, Tim Homayoon from Comedy Central, MTV and SNL, among others. Tim is an animal lover who has supported numerous rescue causes both on and off stage.
And you don't need to be in the market for a new pet - we'll have a Moon Bounce, Animal resuce demonstrations, food, games and a raffle. The Girl Scouts are making goody bags for newly adopted pets and will be hosting a "Make-Your-Own-Mother's-Day-Card" workshop - There'll be fun for the whole family!
We'll have a Microchip Clinic for dogs and cats that are already part of your family. Regular prices are just $25, but we're discounting the first 30 to get chipped that day to just $15. There will be booths with great information and giveaways from pet-related businesses, non-profit groups, and city organizations.

Take a Hike! March Yappy Hour - Sunday, March 31. Our March Yappy Hour featured a special hike with local dog trainer, Lezle Stein. This time we took the southbound route, crossing Via Marisol, and hiked up into Debs Park. There were great views and the dogs all enjoyed the rustic path. Those who went the distance got to see Peanut Lake - a few dogs went swimming. When everyone returned to the Friends of Hermon Dog Park booth, there were treats for the dogs and people too. The hike was a great opportunity to meet firends, get some exercise and to get some free tips from a pro. Check out the photos on Facebook, and make sure to see Martha Benedict's great photos too!!

Bring Your Mementos to Yappy Hour!
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.
Hermon Dog Park was named number 7 of the top 40 dog parks nationwide for 2010 by Dog Fancy Magazine! For more about America's Best  Dog Parks, read the PR Newswire press release here:
