It's may not be the largest dog park, but the quality of the experience tends to bring the locals back to Eureka again and again. While there isn't very much foliage, the wide expanse is great if you want to get your dog working up a sweat. Although in the last couple of years, the city has installed lines of various potted plants to help beautify the park to a great effect. The lack of greenery also makes it a lot easier to keep your eyes on your dog while they're having fun. Owners take note: this park tends to be a bit dusty, and that only gets worse when it rains. If you're trying to avoid letting your canine companion get exceptionally muddy, save this park for sunny days.
The northeast corner of Eureka Valley Dog Park contains a water area for canines. While it is not the most elaborate setup, it does always seem to be functional. Just make sure to bring a bottle or bowl, otherwise, your dog will be drinking from a hose. The city of San Francisco has stated that in 2019, further renovations will be adding dog rinsing stations, as well as a small scale wading pool.
The city has a strict ball regulation for Eureka Valley, which means this fenced off area is filled to the brim with play balls of all shapes and sizes. All of these are regularly swapped out by the city, ensuring that every toy is generally safe for your animal to play with. You are also welcome to bring toys of your own, just make sure to take them home with you!
According to most reviews, this dog park has a very friendly regular crowd. Events are held every third Thursday of the month, weather permitting. These events tend to be dog-specific, so make sure to bring your canine if you attend. More info can be found on the San Fransisco Parks and Recreation website.
