Let's see: the City does everything possible to attract and enable homeless, beggars, and street
peddlers who compete with major stores that pay rent, insurance, payroll, and taxes etc.. The best
of the street people create no problems at all, and may work at recycling. The worst of them use the
streets and parks as a toilet, so do their pets, they create rat infested camps, and expose others to
their disgarded IV needles.

The WOOF program is another feel good welfare program that misses the mark: too many pets remain unsterilized. It's not fair to the animals to have them born into a world where they have no
good prospect of being loved and cared for. Each day the USA kills hundreds or thousands of abandoned pets. If we want to make a difference - forced sterilization is the key.

Well Alison,

I think that just about all of us that have enjoyed a warm/sunny day in Dolores Park can attest, there is plenty of drinking going on in the park. Will there be an end to it altogether? This seems extremely doubtful but you never know.

According to the article you posted there have been people bringing in kegs. I have never personally seen that but I'm sure it happens. I, for one, am completely okay with people drinking in the park if they handle themselves and don't become a nuisance to others. I do not condone under-age drinking or the reports of heroin use, etc but think that responsible drinking is okay.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

I think the soccer moms will probably gently set aside their twins and their decaf lattes, and then use their double strollers to beat the tar out of the hipsters, knocking them out of their ironic t-shirts and skinny jeans while also possibly breaking their thick-rimmed Buddy Holly glasses. But let's all hope for peace, instead, even though peace would be less entertaining. ... more

Hi Miki-

Oh yes! Have you ever seen or heard about Golden Gate Park to start with? SF has multiple parks scattered throughout the City as you can see in the link below. Golden Gate Park, of course, is the creme de la creme.

The real issue is that the lights will not stop lighting up at just the intended fields. I can't blame the neighbors for fighting this. The issue even goes beyond the lights. The neighbors will need to be getting to work and going to sleep by 9 p.m. and the lights and associated noise could keep them from getting the sleep they need. ... more

I usually don't answer questions posted three years prior, either, but in case anyone out there has stumbled upon this question because they own a dog and are thinking about the best places to live in San Francisco, here's a helpful blog entry I posted earlier this week:

For dog parks see some of the great answer to this question in the link below.
For running, there are so many trails and streets, it's ridiculous. Golden Gate Park, Land's End, The Embarcadero, and plenty of hills to climb too! ... more

There are a few good dog spots around SOMA including the Mission Creek Dog Park, South Beach Park, and Esprit park. I've put together a google map of all the dog parks which you can layer on to other google maps to get a better idea of the neighborhood. Here is the direct link to the map:

I also have the link to it and some other good SOMA dog resources on my dog blog.

Crown Beach in Alameda is excellent. On a windy day you will see dozens of people kiteboarding. There is a 2000 sq. ft. kiteboarding shop across the beach that does lessons as well. The name is "Kite Wind Surf" they have been teaching kiteboarding in the Bay longer then anyone. ... more

Nathan answered:
lots of bikefolk in potrero hill/mission, but a route called "the wiggle" winds its way through the city up toward the panhandle. i bike from 8th ave (near UCSF) to Sausalito for work, and only encounter 2 hills. it depends upon what you're looking for; i always see cyclists in the headlands, but would likely never attempt those hills for laziness. ... more
