Rosie's Dog Beach Gets Massengill's "Dogs at Play"

"Dogs at Play" (2015) by Karena Massengill

Dog owners have every reason to thank the City of Long Beach and its Arts Council for Long Beach this summer. Rosie's Dog Beach at Ocean Blvd. and Granada Ave. is now more fun than ever with brightly colored public art that serves as boundary markers replacing the regular marker cones. Karena Massengill's work is a set of 18 "Dogs at Play" sculptures, formally untitled, showing all kinds of dogs doing all kinds of fun things - jumping, chasing, skateboarding.  Painted in bright primary colors and standing at 3 to 5 feet, they vividly mark the beach park's inland northern boundary.

Rosie's Dog Beach is claimed as THE ONLY off-leash DOG BEACH PARK in L.A. County, with nearly 3 acres of waterfront surf and sand between Roycroft and Argonne Avenues.
