Great free range dog park that is in the center of the Castro. Great for gays and their dogs to meet. Bad part is the park smells terribly of dog urine due to the sandy lot and inability to hose the park down. Lots of added benches and plantings with a tented shade area.
Great offleash enclosed area. Jake loves to run around with all the other pups
4 stars for the enclosed dog run. why? Well see, I spent lots of time and money to teach my dog to be a good off leash dog. She is very social and loves to play with friends. The thing is, I also spent some time teaching her how to swim. However, as of yet I have not been able to teach her that she should not "swim" in the giant mud puddles of Dolores Park.
Off Leash Audrey in DP = red dog turned brown
So you see, a place where she can run and be her social self without the mud pool temptation is priceless to me.
Not to mention the fact that they have a shade tent, and plenty of chairs. Poop bags, and tennis balls are abundant. Of late there is a caretaker I often run into who is very friendly and does a lot for the park. Also locals have donated money to install giant cedar planters with trees and flowers to give it more charm!
Minus one bone for the fact that it still smells like whiz, but I think for Audrey that's all part of the charm.
