4/14/23: Signage throughout the Park is intended to protect the delicate riparian way and sensitive habitat in this passive park. Current signage has been approved by RAP, but the community continues to work on new and improved signs that would help Park users understand what is and is not permissible in the Park. The PCOC has a Sign subcommittee that is currently working with the Wolfberg family, as well as RAP, on additional signs.
Multiple signs in the Park currently notify visitors that dogs must be on-leash at all times. LAPD will begin issuing citations for violations of this rule, as it has become all too common for people to use the new Park, with its open vistas and green grassy knoll, as a dog park. But the Park was designed for passive use only, the delicate riparian habitat was not designed to accommodate dogs off leash and the practice is strictly prohibited. The PCOC will be working on ways to inform the public that this use is not allowed, and that community support should be focused on a new dog park in Pacific Palisades. See the most recent PPCC dog park support letter.
