Enjoy the mild San Francisco weather, but be prepared for foggy mornings as the neighborhood is quite close to the Pacific coastline. Visibility can be reduced in the popular early morning walking hours. Daily weather will be dictated mostly by what comes off of the ocean. Mild winters see very little snowfall and the majority of rain falls between November and March.
The natural terrain, however, is a dog-walkers dream! Pine Lake sits in the middle of the neighborhood with walking trails surrounding it. As a natural habitat of plants, small wildlife, trails, and steep slopes surrounding the lake, it is one of the few remaining natural lakes in San Francisco.
Along the way and close to 19th Street, you and your pup can stop off at the Stern Grove Dog Play Area. This is an open play area that is not well fenced-in, so make sure your furry friend knows the 'come' command and will return faithfully to your side. There are no separations for large and small dogs, so if your furry friend is on the small side, keep a good eye on them with the larger pups.
