On Monday, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) announced a proposal to strictly limit off-leash dog walking within the park’s 80,000 acres. Under the new regulations, San Francisco’s Crissy Field and Fort Funston would lose more than half of their off-leash dog walking areas. In Marin, off-leash access would be limited to a portion of Rodeo Beach. The proposal has earned high praise from conservationists, but prompted anger from dog owners who claim that the restrictions ignore their right to public space. The GGNRA is the only location in the park service that allows off-leash dog walking.
