Palisades Dog Park Moves a Step Closer

Dogs need a dog park, not yoga. For the first time in years, there is movement in that direction.

At the Pacific Palisades Community Council virtual meeting on January 11, Councilmember’s Field Deputy Michael Amster announced that the Board of Recreation and Park Commissioners would hear a request to approve an authorization to write a grant to use Measure A money for a dog park in Pacific Palisades.

President Maryam Zar said the Council would send a letter to the Commissioners telling them that the community supported this project.

The Commissioners will meet on Thursday, January 18 at 9 a.m. in the Green Meadows Recreation Center, 431 East 89th Street. Although the meeting will also be held via teleconference (Use this link: Or Dial (669) 900-6833 to Join the Meeting, then enter Webinar ID: 830 9733 6135 AND PRESS #), public comments will only be taken in person.

On the agenda, the dog is listed under Board Reports (24-019) Measure A – Authorization to Submit Grant Applications for Pacific Palisades (Temescal Canyon) Dog Park Project and Sycamore Grove Master Plan and to Accept Grant Funds if Awarded.

If the Board approves this motion and a grant is written, it will be a major step forward to finally moving this project that has been in the works for decades.

The grant application will request $1.5 million to “Create a new off leash dog park including new fencing, path of travel (concrete path, entry plaza), synthetic surfacing, landscaping (trees, irrigation, mulch), security lighting, site amenities (shade structure, hydration station, benches, trash receptacles, dog agility equipment).”

RAP would expect to receive the grant by late spring 2024.

(Editor’s note: Thanks to Councilmember Traci Park for  requesting a grant from Measure A for the Palisades Dog Park.)
