Freeplay, a group of dog owners, their friends and supporters, has been working to establish off leash dog areas in the Los Angeles area and has been successful with the creation of the Westminister Dog Park. We are working strongly to gain access to the beach in LA County as well as more off-leash dog parks.

Freeplay was established on February 14, 1996 in response to the City of Los Angeles zero tolerance policy for off-leash dogs. This action left thousands of dog owners stranded with no legal areas to exercise and socialize their animals.

FREEPLAY is dedicated to protecting the right of recreation for tax payers and their dogs. We are committed to enriching the quality of community life through responsible pet care awareness and the establishment and maintenance of recreational areas where dogs and people can interact in a clean, safe, and pleasant environment.
