Corona Heights SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Small but mighty.

That's how I would describe this park. It has a little bit of everything including sun and heat! San Francisco micro climates are funny. If you want great views, open sky and a constant breeze while staying in the city then go to Bernal Heights park.

If you want the exact same thing but minus the wind, then this is your park.

There's a designated fenced dog park that's made up of dirt and rocks. While not very wide, it's certainly long and provides ample room to run! Although, it's completely exposed so I don't run a whole lot here. I do like to dig here, though - and get nice and dusty. 😜

Can you see me?!


Now, huskies are known to be escape artists. Personally, I like sticking close to my humans, and I rarely jump over things. In fact, I'll actually find ways to walk around fencing or under any railings because I'm weird like that. While there's plenty of fencing around this park, it's actually quite low on one side, which may not matter since there's a very steep drop, but something to watch out for, for those of you who have escape artists!

The times we've visited people here are friendly, always chatting, and are responsible dog owners. Granted, we tend to come during what are probably off peak hours since we don't live within the neighborhood. We've heard from one of our Instagram friends that as regulars, they've experienced more than one unpleasant encounters, which is unfortunate.

Dog parks are a funny thing. My humans used to take me our local neighborhood one everyday when I first joined the family. After a while they realized it wasn't really necessary; us doggies don't always get along, and the humans seem even more particular about each other than we are! Plus, the humans figured out that I'm best behaved when off leash and in open space, when I can decide when to avoid confrontation or when I want to engage in play. I think sometimes I feel trapped inside dog parks.

The best part about this park is actually outside the fence.

If you follow the trail alongside the dog park, it takes you to the stairs that lead directly to the rock outcroppings on top, where you get the most magnificent views of the city.

View from the top of the nice, wide walking path

There's no official leash rules here but best to stay on leash if your pup tends to wander off since this is still in the middle of the city and your pup could potentially run downhill straight into the busy streets or into people's backyards. It's only a short uphill hike anyways.

Up we go!

Pure sunshine

There are actually several ways up to the top depending on which location you enter from. There are access points from Museum Way, Flint Street, State Street or New Corona Heights Trail off 15th Street.

Our preference is to enter from the formal entrance at the intersection of Roosevelt Way and Museum Way. It's also the entrance that's closest to the actual dog park. Mom has actually circled this hill before to find the best place to park. She's crazy like that. 🙃

These views, though...
