Dog Rules of Golden Gate Park

Where large meadows decorate the park, it is typically frowned upon and nearly restricted to have your dog roam about without a leash. If you’re thinking about visiting Big Rec with your trusted companion, you should know that no dogs are allowed at any part of this park.

As for additional rules of Golden Gate Park, you should know they are also enforced to protect the well being of your pet. Very low poison oak is known to flourish in some areas of the park. When touring the trails, there are also plenty of opportunities to play with your dog without the restrictions of a leash, but paying close attention to their actions is still a must.
