Dog owners got thrown a bone yesterday when the SF Board of Supervisors went on record stating that they oppose the federal (proposed) ban on off-leash dogs in certain areas (e.g. Crissy Field, Fort Funston) of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
Of course the park service can do whatever they like, but at least they know our supes aren’t happy about it.
As SF Curbed reports, “Earlier this year, the GGNRA proposed to “completely or significantly reduce” the off-leash areas in national parks like Fort Funston and Crissy Fields. The GGNRA wanted to “strike a balance between park landscape, native wildlife and the 16 million visitors.”
Needless to say, this proposal did not go well with the many (over 110,00 households) dog owners who like to allow their canine friends to run free and play in these areas.
Well, the city has spoken, now we’ll just have to wait and see what the National Park Service says and does.
