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.
