Corona Heights Dog Park, originally known as Rock Hill, is a small off-leash dog park located in San Francisco, California. Despite its size, it is a very popular park in the area. Thanks to its panoramic city view, it is considered one of the best fully fenced dog parks in the San Francisco area.
In addition to having a beautiful, 360-degree view overlooking downtown, the Corona Heights park is located in a convenient area and has multiple entrances, making it easily accessible. In addition to the dog park, there is a playground, basketball and tennis courts, restrooms and a spacious grass field. There are trails running throughout the park of varrying lengths and difficulties.
Dogs are welcome to join their owners on the trails as long as they are leashed. Some of the trails lead to the Randall museum that is located in the middle of the park while others will lead to vista points, the “Slickenside” and the boulders at the top for the “Corona” city view. Three of the trails also lead to the dog park which consists of a fenced, double-gated, off-leash dog area that is approximately 0.4 acres.
There is plenty of open space for dogs of all breeds and sizes to enjoy running together and exploring the tall trees and laying in the bushes for shade. There are drinking fountains and several benches within the off-leash area, allowing dog owners to enjoy the views while also having their canine buddy in sight at all times.
The park’s surface is covered in wood chips and dirt, there are some gentle slopes and even a steep, rock wall for energetic dogs to climb and conquer. However, the park gets very muddy when it rains so it is best to avoid visits after rainfall as there are no washing stations nearby.
Make sure to visit this beautiful park for its scenic views and wildflower displays. You and your pooch will get lots of exercise climbing the hills, just make sure to keep him on a leash until you get to the dog play area as there is lots of poison oak around the trails.
