Beverly Hills' New Dog Park Is Super-Exclusive
Beverly Hills' dog park is now finally open at 344 North Foothill Road. Of course, it is only accessible to residents and employees of the city, and all adjacent plebeians will have to find their own park. The city of Beverly Hills had been working on getting a dog park for quite some time before the park actually entered the design phase last October. According to the park's website, it is 19,000 square feet, divided up into space for both large and smaller dogs. It can fit 40 total dogs, and each human is limited to three dogs each.
In true Beverly Hills fashion, it is restricted to only people who live or work there. To ensure that only locals use the park, humans must create an account here. To be approved, dogs must be properly licensed. Those who are approved will receive special tags, according to Curbed LA. If you are staying at a Beverly Hills hotel or with a resident, you can apply for a two-week permit. The park will be patrolled by a park ranger for at least the first six months.
There was a grand opening at the park on Tuesday, where at least one doggo wore a hat.
