The scenic beauty of the San Francisco coast often combines with its residents’ love of canine companions to make the city’s shoreline prime dog-walking space. But new restrictions proposed by the Golden Gate National Recreational Area may limit where dogs can run free.
Per ABC 7 News, “the proposal, released by the park service on Jan. 14, would reduce the size of off-leash areas for dogs at 21 spots in Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties, including Ocean Beach, Crissy Field and Fort Mason.”
None of the stories included a visual guide as to exactly what are the GGNRA’s “preferred” restrictions, so the attached map is provided, outlining the proposed restrictions on Ocean Beach and at Crissy Field — two of the more-popular shoreline spots for dogs in San Francisco. Note that there are also restrictions proposed at other portions of the GGNRA, including Baker Beach and Fort Mason, that were not included in this map for the sake of simplicity.
