The "Transmission" neighborhood seems to have a bit of an identity problem. Some folks call it "So Cha," "TriBeCha," or "SoCeCha."  Natives call it "La Lengua." It is the flat, southernmost triangle section of the Mission and is often also combined with Bernal Heights or Noe Valley. It doesn't help that mailing addresses are listed as Bernal Heights for some locations. However, it is generally agreed that it stretches between 24th and 30th Streets, between Mission and Guerrero.

While the neighborhood is known for its Latin American and Mexican restaurants, the dog-friendly El Rio is actually a great barbecue place. With a large heated outdoor patio,  you and your furry friend can grab a quick lunch on Mission Street.  

Weather in San Francisco tends to be on the mild side with little to no snowfall. Settled in closer to the Bay Side of the city, the neighborhood is not always at the mercy of weather coming off the Pacific.

Transmission, or La Lengua, is a small section of a larger community. As such, if you stay within its very small borders, you and your pup might not notice the hills San Francisco is famous for. Walk outside the small triangle of the neighborhood, however, and you will find yourself traveling uphill and downhill frequently on the eastern side of the neighborhood.  

This is also a pretty heavily metro area. Guerrero St. merges into San Jose Avenue to the south as a pretty major thoroughfare in the neighborhood. Sidewalks are present throughout the neighborhood, but on-street parallel parking is the norm, reducing visibility for crossing. Use great care with your furry friend, don't cross in between parked cars, and don't allow your pup to lunge out into traffic.  

Mission Street is a bit quieter, but you will not find many treescapes or green spaces in this small neighborhood, so expect it to be an artificial, sidewalk experience.

Inside the small triangle of the neighborhood, there are no green spaces. Luckily, the neighborhood is surrounded by many parks. One of the best, Bernal Heights Park, is about 6 blocks to the east and offers a 26-acre natural oasis in the middle of a metropolitan community. Well-defined dirt trails lead up to the summit which can be great workout for you and your furry friend. The reward for you is a 360-degree unobstructed view of San Francisco.   


The park is an off-leash area for your pup, but it is recommended that they remain on their leash toward the evening hours as coyotes have been spotted from time to time. Many people climb to the summit and let their pups off-leash there on the flatter terrain. Keep your dog's ability in mind when letting them off their leash. they need to know and obey basic behavior commands, especially 'Come!'
