Bordering neighborhoods like the Excelsior, Visitacion Valley, and the Outer Mission. There's a large off-leash area, with plenty of rolling hills, open fields, and trails.

    A popular destination amongst both residents and non-residents of the Bernal Heights neighborhood, this scenic 35-acre, the off-leash dog park is set at the peak of an old rock quarry and provides visitors with world-class panoramic views of the city. If your dog isn't into that, he's sure to enjoy fresh air and spacious room to roam through and investigate.
