Workers remove part of a fallen tree in the flooded Eagle Rock Dog Park.
Eagle Rock -- The Eagle Rock Dog Park is a mess this week after a large tree fell across the grounds, which were flooded after recent rains.
The park in the approximately 21-acre Eagle Rock Recreation Center off Figueroa Street near the 134 Freeway has been closed, according to one reader. There's no word if anyone was injured.
The Eastsider has asked the recreation and parks department to find out when it might reopen and get more details about the extent of the damage.
A nearby playground that is being renovated was also flooded.
Readers have noted that the dog park, which sits in a bowl-like location, has frequently flooded after heavy rains.
After several years of planning, the one-acre dog park with artificial turf opened in 2019. The city allocated $1.3 million for construction.
