Rincon Hill Dog Park is the closest dog run to Union Square (about a 30-minute walk away) and is located on Beale Street under the Bay Bridge. It is relatively new and operates entirely on the goodness of neighborhood volunteers. There is a small dog section and a big dog section. Both areas are pretty small and have no grass (much to Hoku’s dismay) but are very clean and well-kept. The Rincon Hill neighborhood in general is very quiet and residential. Hoku enjoyed this mini escape from the hustle and bustle of Union Square and being able to run around leash-free for the first time in a while. He even met a new friend, a rescue named Dodger.
