Important Meeting for Palos Verdes Dog Park

The Rancho Palos Verdes City Council will consider conceptual designs of Lower Hesse Park during the November 16, 2010 City Council Meeting at Hesse Park at 7 p.m.  Link to Staff Report . Two alternative designs will be reviewed, only one of which includes a dog park.

Preliminary plans for both of these parks included a dog park component, however the consultants hired by the City have eliminated the dog park at Grand View Park as they claim that the topography of the site did not allow for it.  Therefor, the only dog park area left in the designs are for the Lower Hesse Park area.The conceptual plans for both parks can be viewed at

Rancho Palos Verdes City Council is scheduled to consider conceptual designs for Grandview Park at the December 7, 2010 City Council Meeting at 7 p.m. at Hesse Park.


Their were very few dog park supporters at the three public input meetings held this summer, and most of the input received was given by residents close by the proposed parks and who were vocal in their opposition to a dog park at either location.   

The importance of this meetings is magnified for two reasons.  First,  only negative comments about a dog park were received at the three public meetings. Secondly, we were recently informed that the County of Los Angeles would not even begin to review the feasibility of a dog park on the former Palos Verdes Landfill site until June 2012, two years from now.

One of the options the City Council will consider is to not include a dog park in the Lower Hesse Park design but to direct City Staff to research alternative locations within the City for a dog park.  Even if you believe that neither location may be the appropriate location for a dog park , if you would like to see a dog park built somewhere on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, please voice your support for the concept of a dog park. Now is the time to speak up and be heard !!!!

If you want to see a dog park built on the Hill,  now is when we need your support.

I hope to see you all there Tuesday night,
