The $2.4 million renovation of the Golden Gate Park Dog Training Area is complete, making it the premier puppy play area in the city. The trans-fur-mation includes brand new play surfaces, natural play equipment, pet drinking fountains and more.

San Francisco’s largest fenced dog park will re-open on Saturday, February 6, following a $2.4 million renovation that includes separate areas where big and small dogs can safely frolic, natural elements to climb and jump, and a new surface to run and play.

The Golden Gate Park Dog Training Area, near Fulton and 36rd Avenues, boasts fetching new details such as a pet drinking fountain, wildlife-proof trash receptacles, and improved fencing. Natural elements, including eucalyptus trunks and climbable boulders, serve as agility equipment where dogs can unleash energy.

Human visitors will find new picnic tables and benches, a community message board, dog waste bag holders, a water bottle filler and improved accessibility along pathways and in the parking lot. Sand makes up most of the new surfacing. Synthetic turf with natural infill is also present.

The facility was established in 1905 in Golden Gate Park as a space where dog training clubs could practice their hobby. In the past several decades, the Golden Gate Park Dog Training Area has served as a fenced, off-leash dog park for everyone
