• Fort Funston, San Francisco. This stretch of rugged headlands just south of Ocean Beach in the southwest part of the city is not fenced, but it’s nirvana for off-leash dogs and woofing with canine activity even on drizzly, foggy days.
The Fort Funston area (the name comes from its days as a military outpost) is what most of the “Outside Lands” looked like before the dunes were leveled to build Golden Gate Park and attract housing to the Sunset district. Water spigots are located in the parking lot and trails leading to the moody, wave-swept beach that is as rejuvenating to the human spirit as it is irresistible to our furry friends.
