Ocean Beach is a lovely place to take your dog off-leash in the west side of San Francisco.

The conveniently located Ocean Beach is right next to the western edge of the Golden Gate Park. The long beach front provides lots of opportunities for your dog to run around and jump in the water. The area can be heavily used by non-pet owners but unlike nearby Fort Funston, there is an easy access to the waterfront. Watch up for the strong rip-currents and be thoughtful of your dog’s limits. After the walk on the beach consider doing the nearby Lands’ End hike.
