Outer Richmond is a large, mostly residential community located in northwest San Francisco, California. It is also located immediately north of Golden Gate Park. The residential spaces are largely composed of single-family homes, but there are a few apartment complexes throughout Outer Richmond as well. The major commercial spaces are typically found on Geary Boulevard and Balboa Street. There, you will find grocery stores, local and chain restaurants, coffee shops, small shops, a theater, gas stations, and several car-related businesses. There are also several churches and schools throughout the neighborhood. Finally, specifically for your pup, there is a local groomer and a pet hospital located centrally in Outer Richmond.

Outer Richmond, like the rest of San Francisco, experiences a mild climate and does not experience extreme temperatures. This means you will have plenty of perfect days without extreme heat or cold for you and your pup to explore Outer Richmond and its surrounding areas.

As an urban neighborhood, Outer Richmond is largely composed of artificial terrain, but the direct access to two major greenways and the beach make for a great balance of artificial and natural terrain. Additionally, most of the neighborhood has a well-maintained sidewalk should you and your pup decide to explore the residential parts of Outer Richmond. 

Outer Richmond also has some hilly terrain as is typical for many San Francisco neighborhoods. As you move inland or if you move to the north, you will experience steady inclines. 

The boundaries of Outer Richmond include Clement Street, California Street, and El Camino Del Mar to the north, 19th Avenue to the east, Fulton Street and Golden Gate Park to the south, and the Great Highway, the Pacific Ocean, and 48th Avenue to the west. Point Lobos Avenue and Geary Boulevard are also major roadways and may cause safety concerns for pedestrians, dog-walkers, and their pups.

Outer Richmond does have several greenways and has plenty of access to nearby prominent, public parks like Golden Gate Park, as well. The greenways located within Outer Richmond's boundaries include Cabrillo Playground and Fulton Playground. These are smaller public parks located in the residential communities of Outer Richmond and do not have walking trails or off-leash areas for your furry friend. 

However, Outer Richmond is located immediately north of Golden Gate Park. There, you will find plenty of walking trails and attractions to explore as well as an off-leash area if your pup needs extra exercise. Outer Richmond is also immediately southwest of another large greenway that's composed of Balboa Natural Area, Sutro Heights Park, a golf course, and Lands End walking trails and lookout. These are both expansive greenways with plenty of different walking trails. 

Finally, Outer Richmond also has direct access to the beach and the Pacific Ocean if you and your dog need another adventure!
