Wag! Walkers know Fisherman's Wharf

At San Francisco's northeastern corner is the Fisherman's Wharf. A haven for tourists, this area is plum-full of shops and restaurants, including gimmicky crab shacks and steakhouses. Hotels take advantage of聽the proximity to the ocean, posting up along the streets that rest just blocks from the bay. Jumping around the Wharf by foot is easy, but cable cars run through the area as well. Pier 39 offers a unique farmer's market experience, complete with ocean views. You may even see a sea lion or two sunbathing nearby.聽

This is a heavily-trafficked area, especially at the height of tourist season, so walk your dog on a tighter leash than usual, keeping them close for their safety as well as out of consideration of others, as some walking spaces may be very tight. Grab an ice cream cone or hot dog and sit on a bench along the wooden piers, watching the passers-by.聽 You can also walk a short distance to surrounding neighborhoods, like Chinatown or the Marina District where it's a little less likely to find chain restaurants and overpriced gift shops.聽

What is the terrain like in Fisherman's Wharf?

Because it descends into sea level, most of Fisherman's Wharf is relatively flat, especially when compared with the rest of the SF area. However, between the Wharf region and Marina District, some hills may have to be navigated. Fisherman's Wharf is extremely walkable, with sidewalks as well as open plazas sprinkled generously throughout. Pedestrian-protected crosswalks will help you and your walking companion get to point A to point B not only safely, but more efficiently.聽

The Wharf can swarm with people, especially in the Fall (the height of tourist season), when it's sunny and warm. This makes for great people watching but can be overwhelming to a dog as it can feel like their senses are being barraged. If your dog is people-reactive, this may be a great place to take them after months of training, as a final test or step in their counter-conditioning. Try sitting at a bench, having them sit next to you, and feed them treats as people walk by.聽聽

How many greenways are there in Fisherman's Wharf?

San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park is maintained by the National Park Service and offers not only stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge and access to the water, but several historic boats and a museum to tour. Dogs are allowed in the park itself, as long as they're leashed. They aren't, however, allowed to tour the museum or boats with you so you'll have to return another time without your fluffy friend.聽There's Aquatic Park which in the area as well, a quaint outdoor space with unencumbered views of the ocean.聽

Marina Green Triangle is just a quick 15-minute jaunt from the Maritime National Park and offers parking and nice, open space for a dog and owner to run or walk. Built-in equipment calls for many fit聽individuals to attend this park, where they can be seen doing an exercise routine right in the middle of the park, beautiful San Francisco scenery around them. This park is along the San Francisco Bay Trail, which extends 500 miles, tracing the natural curves and lines of the Bay. You're likely to spot some bicyclists and joggers utilizing it.聽

Also nearby is the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, another National Park. An expansive park, you and your pup could easily spend hours just walking the many trails or sitting and enjoying the many views Golden Gate has to offer. Just a few of the sites and activities聽you can enjoy here:

  • Have a picnic in Great Meadow Park
  • Meet other canine friends at Patrick's Park
  • View the retired, historic Fort Mason
  • Participate in the local Community Garden
  • Watch others and join in on a game at the Bocce Ball court

Many tourists flock to Pioneer Park on fog-less days to join the line for Coit Tower, which offers high views of the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area. Dogs, however, aren't allowed to enjoy the heights with their humans. Luckily for the both of you, there's more to do in Pioneer Park than stand in line at Coit Tower. The park offers views of the ocean, paved walking trails, restrooms, and is well-shaded with lush trees and brush. Stairs, although sometimes lengthy, make your walk through the park easier. And multiple trash bins and doggie bag dispensers聽help you and Fido keep the park clean!

If you're looking for something a little smaller and maybe with less of a crowd,聽you can head to Washington Square Park. An open, grassy lot, Washington Square can be quite busy on one of SF's sunny days with people sprawled out on blankets and towels. During overcast days, the park can be a little quieter, making a great spot for your pet to run and play.聽

George Sterling Park has become an unofficial dog park, which is great news if your little buddy is looking to meet friends. This park is alongside Hyde Street which is a historic route for cable聽cars and even has tennis courts if hitting a ball around sounds like your speed. Otherwise, save the tennis ball for a game of fetch
