Eureka Valley contains the sub-neighborhoods of Dolores Heights and Castro. This neighborhood area is located centrally in San Francisco and is known for its active LGBTQ community. Many businesses, restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres, and nightclubs catering to this community are located along Castro Street in what is referred to as 'The Gay Village.' Other main thoroughfares such as 18th Street are also business corridors with shops, restaurants, and services available to area residents. The neighborhood is very walkable and residents frequently visit shops and cafes on foot. Some eateries and cafes have outdoor seating that may allow your canine companion to accompany you for a coffee on the patio.  


Not only is there lots of community spirit and walkable business establishments in this area, but the weather is warm and mostly dry all year with little rain. Mornings can be foggy, although this inland location is not as affected as some coastal locations.

The Eureka Valley-Dolores Heights-Castro District is a very hilly neighborhood with plenty of homes displaying unique architectural features. Homes are located on steep hills, tightly packed, often abutting each other with small setbacks from street fronts. Navigating the neighborhood on foot with your dog is not for the faint of heart as elevation changes in some parts are extreme and require pedestrians and pooches to be in good physical shape for climbing steep hills. 


Most of the residential areas are relatively quiet, especially away from Castro Street’s busy nightlife and commercial areas. The landmark rainbow flag, celebrating the community's LGBTQ culture, is located at Harvey Milk Plaza and can be seen throughout the area. Natural areas such as Kite Hill provide green landscaping in the neighborhood and many yards in this area are visible from the street with trees and lawns that are not as prevalent in other urban San Francisco neighborhoods.

Kite Hill is a greenway located in the Eureka Valley section of the neighborhood that provides wonderful views of surrounding San Francisco from its hilltop vantage point. There are trails and stairs cut into the hill to allow hikers to climb to the summit with their hounds and enjoy the view.

The Eureka Valley Dog Run, centrally located next to the Rikki Streicher Field, is a fenced in doggy play area that your pup can roam in off-leash. This park is known for its friendly owners and dogs and is an excellent place for your pup to exercise and socialize.

Mission Dolores Park is a scenic park with lawns, palm trees, recreational facilities, and for your pooch, two off-leash dog play areas. The park hosts many festivals and performances and is a favorite greenway destination for locals and their dogs to take in activities, a picnic, or play a game of fetch.
