Today at 12:25 p.m., the gates officially open for the Beverly Hills Community Dog Park at 344 North Foothill Rd. and the entire community is invited.
The park development is a hallmark in Beverly Hills, putting the desires of the community first and bringing to fruition the lifelong dream of late philanthropist Paula Kent Meehan, who first expressed the desire for a dog park more than a decade ago. The City Council and the Mayor will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication at 1 p.m. The new park will remain open until 8 p.m.
To join in guests are invited to park at City Hall in the parking structure next to the Beverly Hills Public Library on Rexford Drive and join the dog-friendly shuttle to the dog park.
To use the park, your canine must have a tag showing that their dog registered. Applicants must have a valid license and their animals must be spayed or neutered. The park is open to all residents and their guests, those employed in Beverly Hills and hotel guests.
