Hunters Point is a rather large neighborhood located in the southeastern part of San Francisco, California. This residential community is largely made of smaller apartment complexes, but there are a few standalone, single-family houses. There are a few commercial spaces in the neighborhood including art studios, local coffee shops, a shipyard, a brewery, general shopping areas, local and chain restaurants, and some industrial spaces. There are also quite a few greenways and access to the San Francisco Bay. 

Hunters Point, like the rest of San Francisco, has a mild climate with dry summers and more rainfall in the winters. Additionally, San Francisco doesn't experience extreme weather and temperatures, meaning you will likely always have a cool, comfortable day outside! Just keep in mind that midday sun can make the pavement a bit too warm for sensitive paw pads, to be sure to look out for your pup's feet whenever you venture out.

Like most of San Francisco, Hunters Point does have quite a few hills. As you move closer to the water, you will experience a steady decline throughout the neighborhood. Additionally, most of Hunters Point is artificial terrain, especially because a bit of the neighborhood has traditionally been used as industrial space. Sidewalks in the neighborhood are hit or miss. Some areas have them while you and your pup will have to share the roadways with traffic in other areas so exercise caution as you explore on your daily outings. 


The boundaries of Hunters Point are not linear but they include Islais Creek Channel to the north, the San Francisco Bay to the east and south, and 3rd Street, Hudson Avenue, Ingalls Street, and Palou Street to the west. Cargo Way, Evans Avenue, and La Salle Avenue are also other major roadways that pedestrians may want to avoid during walks due to heavy traffic.
