FiDi is the heart of downtown San Francisco. This is the Financial District where the banks, firms, and high rises live, creating a bustling hub for business and commerce. FiDi's eastern edge is the San Fransico Bay and its west, the famous Chinatown. You can expect plenty of hustle and bustle on these streets! However, it's not all marble and glass. There are several greenways, parks, and plazas available for your enjoyment on your daily outing. The cityscape is dazzling and provides quite a few pleasant and interesting views. 


On average, the weather in this area is never too extreme and remains in the mid-forties to the high-sixties range. Several bars and restaurants offer dog access, just be sure to ask. The sidewalks are wide, so crowding shouldn't be an issue. However, there are multiple-block stretches without grass or medians, so pack clean-up bags and plan ahead to hit up a greenway at some point during your rounds.

San Fran is famous, or should I say infamous, for its steep climbs. For the sake of living a glass-half-full kind of life, let's just say the half of your walk should be a fun, downhill stroll! While this might be a good workout for you, keep your dog's health in mind if you're dealing with an older pup or one with joint problems, as these hills can create a bit of a challenge and may result in some overexertion or injury. If at all possible, consider driving to nearby park if that's the case. 


Aside from the hills, the terrain is what'd you'd expect in a downtown environment in that it's mostly urban with little differentiation. However, this area does offer up the option of a bayside stroll or a visit to the park. Along the sidewalks, there are trees sprinkled in, so don't expect a walk devoid of all things natural.

The first space worth mentioning is the Transamerica Redwood Park. This is centrally located within the district, making it fairly accessible no matter what your point A happens to be. There are beautiful redwoods, benches, fountains, and a large plot of green to roam around on. 


If you're on the south edge of FiDi along Market St., your closest spots are the Yerba Buena Gardens, heading away from the Bay or Sue Bierman Park and right by it. Make sure not to take doggos into the actual gardens though as this is not allowed and in other areas, they should be securely on-leash. Sue Bierman is a 5.3-acre park outside of the high rises, offering open sky and ocean proximity. 


Lastly, Sydney G. Walton Square is a cool area worth seeing. Surrounded by awesome architecture and sculptures, this little plot is near the top right corner of the district. Unfortunately, there are no leash-free spaces in the area.
