Lots of room for larger dogs to run around and play. If your dog loves the water, the beach is the best place.
A wonderful place to bring your dog.
Just beware, they will smell and be soaked if they like the water.
Very fun place, roxie loved running down the beach n rolling in the sand. Great Views, good parking, and lots of cute pups ;)
if you love your day, take him/her here.
your dog will shower you with kisses of gratitude, because this spot is the epitome of doggy heaven.
wide trails, sprawling hills of sand and access to the beach - everything your doggy will love.
it's a great place to let your doggy off the leash and know he/she is safe. dogs are able to get all their energy out because there's just so much space to run around!
it's also a wonderful spot for you to meet fellow dog owners and for your doggy to meet new friends/potential mates.
it is hands down, by far, my favorite spot to take my dog. not only does she love it, but i enjoy my time there as well - it's a nice walk/hike and the scenery is gorgeous. and being surrounded by adorable doggies everywhere you turn is awesome.
Fort Funston is Bay Area dog nirvana. Crashing ocean surf, broad beaches, beautiful views, ample parking. Watch out for hanggliders up top and horseback riders on the sand.
Fort Funston is my #1 fav off-leash beach walk to take my pup. It is gorgeous, abundant parking and lots of varieties of playful pups and owners! Clear skies and warm days are a treat.
Fort Funston is wonderful for off-leash fun with your pup. You can hike, play in the water at the beach, or roam the hillside. We recommend bringing your own water and clean-up supplies. While there is plenty of natural beauty, the public facilities leave something to be desired.
This is a GREAT place to socialize your dog. On any given day you will meet dozens of dogs. You can walk your dog on the paved trails, or walk down to the beach and let your dog swim in the ocean. Leashes are not required so if you have a well-behaved dog you can let it run around off leash. The scenery is absolutely beautiful!
There may be no greater place on the planet than Fort Funston for the canine race. Pretty nice place for humans, too.
this is a great place with you and your 4 legit friend. nice view on a great day. off leash is nice
This is a great place to go for hiking along the coast, however we prefer other beaches to the one at Fort Funston. The sand here is dark and dirty and we always come across dead birds and seals. Sookie smells pretty bad after a romp here. It's also foggy and cold on most days. Doggie heaven, but not so great if you don;t want to drive home with all of the windows down.
This is hands down the absolute best dog spot around. Total doggie wonderland, I was in awe the first time I came here. Not only is it teeming with friendly dogs and tons of space to run and play off-leash, it's a beautiful spot. I love how there's plenty of options here- whether you want a beach walk or a trail, your dog can have it. Just watch out for dead sea life if you opt for the beach- you do NOT want the pup rubbing up against a dead sea lion, trust me.
The most amazing dog spot I've found in San Francisco. Make no mistake, dogs run the show here.
Huge parking lot make accessing this spot super easy. From the parking lot you'll hit a few trail options, stay far to the right for the best dog route. You'll pass a water fountain early, if your dog needs water make sure to stop as you won't have another chance. Then begin the descent along a windy dog riddled trail down to the ocean. You'll pass tons of dogs so if you pooch isn't the best at following make sure to keep him or her on-leash until you hit the beach. The final stop is the beach and the safest spot to allow your dog to run off-leash.
Just be sure to bring a towel to clean off the dog before getting back in the car.
Audrey dog knows this park better than me...she goes here with her playgroup during the day quite often and she always comes back super exhausted. Off leash and water=happy dog!
This is the first dog park that Ella ever visited and has been the best so far of her 5 years! The place is MASSIVE! It is far big enough even for the most timid dog to feel comfortable, due to the huge "space cushion" you are able to have there. It is literally two levels and one includes the beach! Ella particularly loooves the water, so we have to visit the lower level every trip. There are ample trash cans for clean up, water bowls to quench the doggies thirsts, plenty of pick-and-choose trails...there isn't just one way to walk through this place. It is literally trails upon trails and then has all the intrigue of the abandon military base with the cement bunker tunnels! This place is also very relaxing with a stunning view of the ocean.
If you live within an hour or so of this park...it is an absolute must see, hands down!
Gorgeous place for the pups to roam and play on the beach. My pooches get a little scared of the occasional horse and the entrance/exit is a little steep, but well worth it! Make a picnic and spend the day!
The great thing about this park is its all DOGS! Youve got two options here, hiking through the wild california countryside, following the paved trails, or you can head down to the beach and have some fun with fido in the ocean. Both are a great workout for both dogs and thier human pets.
My dog can never get enough of fort funston! Once we get to the parking lot, he can't stop whining because he can't wait to get out and run. Lots of open space for your dog to run, a beach if your dog loves the water. Everyone there is always friendly and are very responsible with their own pets. Definitely a positive experience for you and your dog!
This has to be the premiere dog friendly park in San Francisco.
A nice stroll will take you around the bluffs, or you can walk down to the beach with fido.
Lots of pooches and dog friendly folks about, you can go offleash, and there are some poop-bag stations and a drink station.
Best dog park in town!!! It is the equivalent of Disneyland for dogs. Also it does not hurt that the location is beautiful and provides ample opportunities to take awesome pictures of your pooch. It's Taz's second home.
Fort Funston has to be one of the best dog beaches in America. The place is like an off-leash Disney World for dogs. Park in the large parking lot off Skyline Blvd. As you walk down toward the beach there is a water fountain. You can stroll through the park and make your way down to the expansive beach. The first time my puppy experienced the sand he was in puppy heaven. Step cliffs boarder the beach and for the most park it is only used by dog owners. You can also watch the hang-gliders launching off the cliffs.
Along with Point Isabel I'd say that Fort Funston is one of the best dog parks in the Bay Area and beyond.
My favorite place to take my two dogs in the city. The view is great so it's nice for people too. You can walk all around the paths or go down to the beach, and there are plenty of other nice dog owners and cute dogs around for my fidos to play with. I also love how the beach is secluded because of the cliff, so there is plenty of space for my pups to roam without fear of them running onto the great highway. The hike back up to the parking lot is intense though!
This was one of my all time favorite places in the city even before I got a dog. I would love to go out there and walk along the oceanside cliffs and look out across the city and the bay. Incredible views and atmosphere and don't let me forget about the hangliders.
When the conditions are right (I do not know what the "right" conditions are) there can be many folks flying on the breeze. Leaping off the edge of the world with giant multi-colored wings and soaring up to the sky. All this in the SF city limits (albeit on the far edges of the city)
And now I am one of the lucky dog owners that also gets to take advantage of this amazing place. I do not think there is a happier place on earth for my puppy. Running around the dunes, jumping off into sandy landings and tons of other dogs to play with. An hour here and she is done for days, snoozing and dreaming of the next time she gets to go back.
