LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The organization that runs a shuttered dog park in downtown Los Angeles’ arts district is hoping for enough donations to reopen the popular pooch hangout.
The Los Angeles Downtown Arts District Dog Park is a private park run by the Los Angeles River Artists & Business Association.
Last month, the park was locked up and dog owners were asked to pay $60 for a key to use the park for six months.
“It has been a costly endeavor to keep the park open and operational and we need your help moving forward,” a sign posted on the park fence last month reads.
“Your money will help offset the costs for the basics: Property Tax, Insurance, Electricity, Water, and minor maintenance. That doesn’t cover trash pick up or supplies (yet) – so please chip in and keep it clean, safe and usable,” the sign continued.
Keys can now be purchased at The Corner Store on Traction Avenue and Hewitt Street.
