K-9 Corner Dog Park
9th Street and Pacific Avenue
Long Beach, California
Residents in the north Pine Avenue area of Long Beach partnered with the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency to transform a vacant lot at 9th and Pacific Avenue into the "K-9 Corner Dog Park."
The park opened in September, 2009. It has a unique design that is environmentally friendly by using drought tolerant landscaping and generating 100% of its electricity on site with solar energy.
The park has water fountains for humans and dogs, seating, evening lighting and separate areas for large and small dogs.
