While the poor pooches in the Historic Core have to depend on scratchy "designated doggie relief areas," the fancy South Park dogs can take full advantage of an under-the-radar new dog park over at LA Live. The idea of a fenced-in dog park was dangled in front of potential Ritz-Carlton residents way back in 2010, but didn't actually open until this past November, says the Downtown News. Better late than never, right? On top of the delay, LA Live developer AEG never really got around to having an official opening. The canine playland has separated running space for large and small dogs, and is patrolled by LA Live's security and watched by video cameras.
