Fine dining and boutiques line Chestnut Street, where you can even find canine spas that offer everything from a traditional wash and cut to hair dying and nail painting for your furry friend. Most restaurants offer patio seating which may accommodate pets so long as they're leashed and well-behaved.
The Marina District has grocery chains, restaurants, coffee shops, fashion stores, novelty gift shops, multiple museums, movie theaters, and parks, almost giving its residents little reason to leave its borders. All in all, the neighborhood is both extremely walkable and flushed with entertainment and activities.
San Francisco caters to its pedestrians and bikers as this is how many of its residents and most of its tourists explore all the city has to offer. This means you'll be hard-pressed to find streets not lined with bike lanes, neighborhoods without sidewalks, or busy intersections without crosswalks.
Patrick's Park is named after a local legend: an awe-inspiring, trick-loving dog named Patrick. On certain days you and your doggo may even get to witness Patrick in action or meet him and his owner. This is a local favorite for dog-owners, despite its size. It also hosts an annual St. Patrick's Day Dog parade where pups in costumes can strut their stuff, meet new friends, and strike a pose.
The Marina Green Triangle is positioned at the top right corner of the Marina District. Benches give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views or hop on the many pathways for a jog with your dog. It's also a pit stop for many bikers, as it's along the San Francisco Bay Trail. Walk 15 minutes west and you'll find the Chrissy Field Center, home to yachts, picnics, a lighthouse, and a quirky attraction known as the Wave Organ. All of this can be enjoyed within a 30 to 40-minute walk if your pooch is up for a fun stroll.
If you're looking for something more doggie-centric, the Marina District has that too! Moscone Dog Park was unveiled in early 2018, opening to the public and its playful pets to enjoy for years to come. The area is fenced, giving dogs the opportunity to romp and run without being encumbered by a leash.
