3 Great Family and Dog Friendly Parks

With a very active toddler and a dog that needs much love, it’s hard to plan the weekends out so that both get the exercise they need.  One super easy (FREE) way for our babies to get their wiggles out is by going to a park for a few hours and enjoying the sunshine.  Here are three of my favorite parks in the West LA area.

Roxbury Park

I love this park.  It had a ton of space/grass area for picnics, outside activities, and two parks for the kids.  On site there is a baseball field, bacci court, lawn bowling lawn, basketball court, and so much more.  Parking is ample street or metered parking, clean bathrooms, a community center nearby and tables that you can reserve for very cheap ($14-$29 each).

Mar Vista Park

AWESOME park for families and people looking to play sports.  HUGE field for soccer, football and baseball; playground for little ones; tons of tables for picnics/parties, cleanish restrooms for families, and a workout area for adults.  This park is incredibly easy to walk or drive to with pets and little ones.

Palms Park

Palms park has a community center, playground, public library and soccer field.  It’s a small, tucked away park right off the 10 freeway but perfect for a family to spend the day/evening.  Your little one can play at the park and then go to story time in the library!  Parking here can be a little tricky if there’s a soccer game going at the same time, but it’s a great one-stop shop when you’re trying to plan a day of activities for your little one without spending money or going from place to place.
