Wag! Walkers know Ashbury Heights

Ashbury Heights is a mostly residential neighborhood of the Bay Area. Along the walkable sidewalks of the suburb, you'll witness the gorgeous architecture San Francisco is known for, seeing brightly-painted Queen Annes and counting the Bay Windows.聽Coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery chains are within walking distance if you don't mind a bit of a jaunt. (And quite a jaunt, indeed, when considering the undulating terrain San Francisco is known for.)聽

When hiking the many hills of Ashbury Heights causes you to grow weary, you can take advantage of San Francisco's transportation system. SFMTA, San Francisco Municipal聽Transportation Agency, consists of many different vehicles, including buses, trains, and its historic cable cars.聽Service animals are allowed on any of these routes, without paying a fee, but if your dog isn't certified, fret not. Any dog is allowed to ride during specified times as long as they are leashed, muzzled, and paid for.聽

San Francisco is one of the top-rated dog-friendly cities in the United States, meaning there are many dog-friendly parks and businesses within Ashbury Heights and its surrounding regions. So when you aren't out exploring or exercising with your pooch, you're welcome to stop by local coffee shops and breweries to enjoy refreshment with your furry friend in tow. It's also likely you'll be able to experience this al fresco as a majority of the year is patio weather in San Fran, especially if you don't mind a little fog or a chilly ocean breeze.聽聽

What is the terrain like in Ashbury Heights?

There are areas of SF known for the incredible steepness of its hills, many of them containing the word "Mount" in them, just to give you an idea of their聽mind-boggling angles. Thankfully, none of them are located in Ashbury Heights. However, that doesn't mean descending or ascending slopes don't exist. Along main roads, like Frederick Street, Clayton Street, and Masonic Avenue, you'll find both inclines and declines of various degrees. Anything major will have stairs, making the climb or slump easier for both two and four-legged walkers.聽

San Francisco is a pedestrian-friendly city and Ashbury Heights is no exclusion.聽You'll find sidewalks, crosswalks, and stairs are as bountiful as the infamous hills.聽Due to its age and frequency of earthquakes, some sidewalks and stairs may have cracks in them, so be sure to step with a little caution. In more residential areas, such as this one, foot traffic occurs less than it does in highly touristy areas, but you should still be aware of joggers or walking commuters if you own a dog who is easily excited by strangers.

How many greenways are there in Ashbury Heights?

If you and your leashed partner are up for the climb, Buena Vista Park can offer breathtaking 360 views of the city. Walkways vary between paved and unpaved and the steep climbs are made slightly easier with stairs. Buena Vista has a concentration of old oak trees as well, with trails that wind through the shaded densely wooded area. Be wary of visiting at night, however, as the solace of the forest has given a local coyote population reason to linger.聽

Corona Heights Park is right next to Buena Vista and offers great views as well. At its peak, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and the blue water that surrounds it. Keep dogs leashed out of consideration of others, but also for their safety as there have been several coyote聽sightings here as well.聽

Bordering the top of Ashbury Heights is a small park called The Panhandle. It's named this due to its unique long, thin shape. Concrete pathways give way to joggers with strollers or dog-walkers such as yourself, and on either side of the greenway are adorable quintessential San Franciscan homes. This may be ideal for a nice, quick run or a leisurely stroll before dinner time given both its unchallenging size and proximity to the neighborhood.聽

Golden Gate Park is one of San Francisco's top tourist attractions, inviting millions of visitors a year. The park is over 1,000 acres, offering multiple sights to see, walkways to explore, and activities to enjoy. A shortened list of what the park has to offer shows how diverse and rare it is:

  • Carousel聽
  • Conservatory of Flowers
  • Botanical Garden
  • Golf Course
  • Sports fields and complexes (Frisbee golf, horseshoes, archery, tennis)
  • Dutch Windmill
  • Art Studio
  • Japanese Tea Garden聽
  • Access to the beach

From Ashbury Heights, you and your walking buddy can get to the eastern-most region of Golden Gate Park in less than 20 minutes by foot. The park is a long, thin rectangular shape so walking its breadth will take less time than walking its three-mile length. Dogs are allowed within the park as long as they're leashed, but some of the attractions inside - such as the tea garden or sports complexes - may not be dog-friendly. There are a few designated off-leash areas, but most are not fenced. If that's an issue for you or your pet, there is a fenced area for doggos to run and play on the side of the park that Fulton Street lines. However, it is closer to the beach (its north-western side), so quite a trek from Ashbury Heights as it rests east of the park.聽
