This week plans to transform a forlorn triangular patch of land at 4th and Molino in Downtown's Arts District into a community dog park were revealed, and the upgrades to the roughly 6,000-square-foot space will soon be underway.

A visit to the land now owned by non-profit group Los Angeles Artist and Business Association (LARABA) shows that there is much work to be done to complete the fencing, remove the concrete debris, and revive the grass. The group is seeking volunteers to help them convert the space into a usable dog park.

When complete, this will be the first dog park in Downtown Los Angeles.
