Hermon Dog Park is an off-leash park adjacent to the historic Arroyo Seco of Northeast Los Angeles. The dog park is supported by the Friends of Hermon Dog Park, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised entirely of volunteers and dependent on donations.
The park has two fenced areas, one for large dogs and one for small, elderly and disabled dogs. Facilities include a double-gated entrance, trees, benches, and water dispensers for the dogs. The surface is decomposed granite, for mud free, easy clean up. Biodegradable doggie waste bags are available in dispensers. Hermon Dog Park is open every day from dawn until dusk.

August Yappy Hour, August 30th Pet Education Seminar
At our June Yappy Hour and Dog and Cat Vaccine Clinic (June 29), Pets First Foundation partnered with FHDP to offer low cost vaccines to dogs and cats, and even microchipping. The first 25 pet owners in line received one free vaccine. 80 pets were vaccinated, and Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council had a booth with plenty of fun freebies and dog treats. One person received a year supply of dog food from Wellness by entering their name in the opportunity drawing. A great time inside and outside the dog park was had by all.

Two experts, Cynthia Sanchez, Red Cross Pet First Aid Instructor and Level 3 CERT trained, as well as Thea Martin, Pet Disaster Planning Instructor, provided hand-outs, emergency checklists and answers to your questions. Topics covered included: What to do if the shelters won't take pets? How do we keep our pets safe? How to approach injured pets. What supplies are really needed?We had a drawing for prizes and the usual doggie snacks and information at our booth. Seating was provided by Councilmember Jose Huizar of CD-14.
Annual Membership Meeting
Especially in the winter months, people ask why the dog park can't have lights so that dogs can romp when owners get home from work. Aside from the budgetary and logistical issues, we also have an agreement with our neighbors who would be affected by the light and noise. In order to get the park built in the first place, we agreed to honor our neighbors' request for daylight hours only. Those of you who need a place to take your dogs after dusk are encouraged to visit Silver Lake Dog Park which is open until 10pm. Thank you for your understanding.
