WEST HOLLYWOOD—The North end of West Hollywood Park, including the city’s two dog parks, will be temporary closed to the public starting Wednesday, February 21 to Thursday, March 8. The Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 26th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party, which raises funds to end the AIDS epidemic, prevent infection and ensure those living with HIV have access to medical care and treatment will transpire on Sunday, March 4.

According to the city of West Hollywood website, West Hollywood recognizes the closure affects park patrons, community members, and animal companions and appreciate the community’s patience. To limit future dog park closure, the West Hollywood Facilities and Field Services Division will be finishing maintenance and outstanding construction related tasks during the closure for the Elton John AIDS Foundation Viewing Party. The improvements will ensure the safety of dog park users.

Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, will remain open for park patrons and the Off-Leash Dog Park at William S. Hart Park, located at 8341 De Longpre Avenue, will remain open for community members and their animal companions.

Anyone with questions related to the closure of the north end of West Hollywood Park, including the Dog Parks, is asked to contact the city of West Hollywood’s Department of Public Works at (323) 848-6375.
