This neighborhood is commonly referred to as North Panhandle, North of Panhandle, or simply Panhandle. While The Panhandle refers to a long, skinny park that connects to Golden Gate Park, North Panhandle refers to the small, residential neighborhood to the northeast of the park. This neighborhood has both single-family homes and smaller apartment complexes. Additionally, there are also commercial spaces in North Panhandle, including many local restaurants and coffee shops, a school, and grocery stores for locals to access when necessary.

North Panhandle and the greater San Francisco area both have mild climates. This means it usually is never freezing cold or sweltering hot and you are more likely to experience mild temperatures with a light breeze coming off the Pacific Ocean. It does get quite chilly in the evenings, so be sure to pack a sweater or jacket before setting off on a walk if you need to.

North Panhandle is nowhere near as hilly as the rest of the downtown San Francisco area. However, there still are some increases and decreases in elevation throughout this small neighborhood. Additionally, most of this neighborhood is made of artificial terrain and Panhandle Park provides some greenery in San Francisco's urban environment. Thankfully, this neighborhood is only a short walk away from Golden Gate Park, so a more natural walking environment is only minutes away!

As a small neighborhood, North Panhandle is bordered by Turk Street and Fulton Street to the north, Divisadero Street to the east, Fell Street and Panhandle Park to the south, and Stanyan Street and Golden Gate Park to the west. Masonic Avenue is another major roadway and pedestrians may wish to avoid this more high-trafficked area as fast-moving, noisy cars may spook a pup that is particularly sensitive to sound and movement. Stick to residential sidewalks for a calmer walking experience.

For such a small neighborhood, North Panhandle has great access to major greenways. Panhandle Park is the only greenway within the borders of the North Panhandle neighborhood and consists of a playground, basketball courts, a public restroom, and about a mile-long walking trail for you to enjoy with your pup at your side.  

Panhandle Park, however, connects directly to Golden Gate Park which is one of the largest greenways in downtown San Francisco. Golden Gate Park is home to multiple different sports fields and facilities, a botanical garden, playgrounds, a Japanese tea garden, and general recreation areas. There are also four off-leash areas in Golden Gate Park, one of which is only half a mile away from the North Panhandle neighborhood. Outside of these areas, remember to be courteous to other locals and visitors and keep your pup tethered on their leash to avoid wandering where they shouldn't be.
