  • Fort Funston located in a picturesque part of the Park, with stunning views of the ocean. The Park has trails for hiking, horseback riding. In addition, this popular doggy Park San Francisco. There are many hikers, cyclists and lovers of beach relaxation. In this part of the Park are very beautiful sunsets.

  • By far the BEST dogs park in Bay Area. Magnificent vista, very roomy, clean and safe. Excellent place for socializing both for dogs and owners. Highly recommended. 
  • When you combine a beautiful beach and a place where my four legged child can run free, you have one of my favorite places on the planet. My furry sidekick and I both LOVE this place. Go on a sunny da...  more »

  • This is one of the best places to access the beach. Perhaps more for adventure than swimming (since the water is chilly all year long). There's a decent amount of parking. There is a water to rinse before you get back into your car. This place is popular with dog owners. People also fly hang gliders here. From the parking area to the beach there is a big drop so it is quite a walk (back up). The view is great. We love coming here an hour before sunset.
  • Warning, if you're having fear of dog, don't go here. Otherwise, it is dog heaven. Great view of the ocean and landscapes. If you're going down to the beach, going back up again can be a challenge for some. My advise, if you're going up, take your time! Good chance that you'll see hang-gliding, and horse-back riding.
  • I think it's a great experience for dogs. My dog had such a fun time there that when we were driving there she got all excited like she knew where we were going. Its also fun for kids to!
  • It's a an old military base converted into a gigantic dog park. It's a must see, you would never expect something like this tucked away in San Fran. You can see paraglider jumping off the cliffs and flying around with the strong winds. Dogs can be on or off leashes depending on obedience level. It's awesome place to visit. And if you are brave enough to can jump in the water and enjoy a swim.
  • This place is great, though the beach is kind of unkept, wish the city did more to keep it nice and tidy. Otherwise dogs are roaming wild and having a blast from top to bottom! :)
