“The event is very important to the residents of the City as it provides a wonderful opportunity for pet owners in BH to be able to socialize their pets with other residents’ pets at a local park. The Dog Park will be promoted to all ‘Woofstock 90210’ attendees which has been a priority of our City Council to create a special park for dogs in the community to go to. We have a lot of apartment owners in the city who are in need of a place to bring their dogs to socialize,” said Cindy Brynan, Senior Recreation Supervisor for the City of Beverly Hills Community Services Department.
Pets must have all up to date vaccinations. Dogs have to be on a non-retractable leash. The event is free for the public to attend. For more information on “Woofstock 90210” call (310) 285-6830 or check out the city’s website at www.beverlyhills.org/woofstock90210.
