Lafayette Park has gone to the dogs -- literally!
San Francisco has numerous neighborhood parks, and each has its own flavor. Lovely Lafayette Park sits atop a knoll high in the Pacific Heights neighborhood in San Francisco, with stunning views in all directions. A favorite spot for residents in the surrounding condos, apartments, homes and mansions -- and for their dogs.
The social scene at Lafayette Park is the dogs. Yes, there are 2 tennis courts and a small children's playground area. And one small fenced in grassy area is off limits to dogs. But the rest of the park is dog heaven:
- dogs meet their friends here and romp joyfully together
- dog walkers bring their charges for exercise and play, and somehow manage to gather them all up again when it's time to leave
- men and women, young and old, become friends through their dogs' friendships
- a group of dog owners even decorate one of the park trees with photos of their dogs at Christmastime.
Come explore Lafayette Park; bring your dog and you'll make new friends in no time at all.
City living, at its best! Are you ready to find your spot?
