San Francisco is on the top tourist places in the world and it well know for its summer fog, steep hills, and cable cars. There’s also an eclectic nightlife and wonderfully crowded and amazing Chinatown. San Francisco is also a very pet friendly city. There are some amazing parks and hiking trails where you and your pet can play and walk. If you’re passing through or just moved and your pup needs to burn off some steam, here’s a few dog parks to check out.

There’s an off-leash dog park in the Pacific Heights area of SF in Lafayette Park located at Laguna St. and Sacramento St. This park is popular among dog owners. It’s a small park and offers some beautiful views of the city. The park is open from 6am to 10pm. It doesn’t get as crowded as some of the other dog parks and dog runs which is good if your dog is on the shy side. If you’re near Pacific Heights, this may be a good park to stroll through and let your dog make some new friends.

McLaren Park is located in the Bayview neighborhood at Shelly Dr. and Mansell St. This park is less than 10 acres but it’s fenced in and dogs can run around off-leash. The dog area is at the top of the hill. Don’t let your dog play in the reservoir. The park has a few rough neighborhoods nearby so you may want to be more aware of your surroundings if you are there late in the evening. It’s open from 6am to 10pm.

Golden Gate Park is one San Francisco’s most well known parks to tourists and city dwellers. It is also very pet friendly. There’s an off-leash area near the entrance at Fulton St and 38th Ave. The off-leash dog run has four separate areas allowing for dogs of different sizes, energy levels, and temperament to play. One of the fenced areas is for training purposes. When walking your dog to the runs, keep her on leash and be mindful of others. This park gets very crowded and there are a bunch of activities going on that could get your dog excited such as horses, skateboarders, joggers, and rollerbladers.
