Golden Gate Park’s Pawsome Update

In San Francisco, Golden Gate Park is a true treasure and oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of the city.  Visited by 24 million people each year, it stretches over 1,000 acres and has something for everyone, including: gardens, picnic areas, numerous trails, a disc golf course, and a dog park in each quadrant.

The newly-renovated Dog Training Area at Golden Gate Park.

One of these dog parks—known as the Dog Training Area, located near the Bison Paddock—recently underwent a renovation thanks to a generous grant from the California Natural Resources Agency.

The renovation included numerous improvements and updates, including new picnic tables and benches, replacement of the fencing, a multi-level dog fountain, new landscaping, and accessibility improvements to the parking lot and pathways throughout the area.

For the pathways, San Francisco’s Public Works department chose GraniteCrete paving material. GraniteCrete stood out as the best accessible choice because it requires minimal maintenance and is “firm and stable, non-slip, and permeable.”

GraniteCrete is thrilled to be part of the Dog Training Area’s fetching transformation, and hope visitors and their four-legged friends enjoy it for years to come.
