The city of West Hollywood announced the annual temporary closure of the north end of West Hollywood Park, including Dog Parks, to accommodate the Elton John AIDS Foundation 26th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

The fundraiser raises millions of dollars each year with the aim of ending the AIDS epidemic, preventing infection, and ensuring all people living with HIV have access to high-quality medical care and treatment.

Due to the build-out required at West Hollywood Park for this important annual event, as well as the need to complete final construction-related tasks at the Dog Parks, the north end of West Hollywood Park, including the two Dog Parks, will be closed to the public from Wednesday, February 21, 2018 to Thursday, March 8, 2018.

The City of West Hollywood recognizes that this closure impacts park patrons, community members, and animal companions and we appreciate your patience.


To limit future Dog Park closures, the City of West Hollywood’s Facilities and Field Services Division will be completing maintenance and final outstanding construction-related tasks during the closure related to the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 26th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party. These improvements will ensure the comfort and safety of Dog Park users.

Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, will remain open for park patrons and the Off-Leash Dog Park at William S. Hart Park, located at 8341 De Longpre Avenue, will remain open for community members and their animal companions.
