Fort Funston/Burton Beach

Fort Funston/Burton Beach
Dog-Friendly Beaches
Skyline Blvd./Hwy 35
San Francisco,

Get Map or Directions

This is a very popular dog-friendly park and beach. Dogs are allowed off leash here with the exception of the 12 acre enclosure in the northwest section. In the past, dogs have been allowed off-leash. However, currently all dogs must be on leash. Fort Funston is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. There are trails that run through the dunes & ice plant from the parking lot above with good access to the beach below. It overlooks the southern end of Ocean Beach, with a large parking area accessible from Skyline Boulevard. There is also a water faucet and trough at the parking lot for thirsty pups. It's located off Skyline Blvd. (also known Hwy 35) by John Muir Drive. It is south of Ocean Beach. Thanks to one of our readers for this info. Expect to see lots and lots of dogs having a great time. But not to worry, there is plenty of room for everyone.
