Yerba Buena was the name used by the original settlement that later became known as San Francisco. Today, the name applies to a neighborhood in northeast San Francisco that is a densely packed art and entertainment district. Streets in the community are lined with theatres, museums, galleries, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, and retail shops. Walking is a frequent way of getting around in this busy area and pet owners can enjoy proximity to a variety of destinations. 


The weather in San Francisco is not very cold, but it can be cool, damp, and foggy. Thick fogs are common and reduce visibility for pedestrians and vehicles.  Be careful crossing busy streets when visibility is limited. The Bayside of San Francisco, where Yerba Buena is located, usually experiences a lifting of fog earlier in the day than the Pacific Coast, so waiting until later in the day for the fog to dissipate may be a good strategy for dog walkers.

The Yerba Buena District is situated between Market Street on the north and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Highway on the south. Located on the Bayside of San Francisco, it is a few blocks off the waterfront. Yerba Buena is a highly developed urban landscape with high rise apartments and commercial buildings. Multi-story buildings provide some shade to area streets, but there is little landscaping along roadways. A public garden is centrally located with some green space, trees, and lawns. 


The area is not as hilly as many other neighborhoods, but there are some inclines in the region, although they are not particularly steep. Most residents in the neighborhood live in apartment buildings, often with retail space at street level. Many streets in the neighborhood are one way and many have bike lanes. The area is heavily trafficked and, when walking your dog, you should look out for both four-wheeled and two-wheeled traffic.

The Yerba Buena Gardens are centrally located in the neighborhood with trees, gardens, lawns, artworks, a monument, and a waterfall. This green space also has paved pedestrian paths to enjoy a stroll. If you are looking for an off-leash dog park in the area, the Rincon Dog Park is located several blocks to the east. 

Those looking for long greenways can find them at Golden Gate and Presidio Parks. Presidio Park has many greenways along the waterfront including the California Coastal Trail. Golden Gate Park has many greenways in a vast urban space and several off-leash dog areas where you can exercise your pup. The park has over 1,000 acres of trees, open spaces, natural areas, and recreational land with a multitude of attractions, some truly unique. These include a bison pen, an aquarium, and a carousel. This park is always an adventure and is popular amongst locals with pets on the north side of San Francisco.
