San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood is centered between Franklin, Market, Leavenworth and Turk streets, with a large portion of the neighborhood’s businesses and government offices along Van Ness Avenue. Civic Center assets include City Hall, UN Plaza, and cultural institutions such as the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and Orpheum Theater, among others.
Leashed dogs are allowed throughout Civic Center, except at the Heart of the City Farmers Market. Off-leash dogs are allowed at the UN Plaza dog run (coming soon!); all dog waste must be promptly picked up and disposed of in a garbage receptacle. ADA service animals are allowed everywhere in Civic Center.
The City’s temperature can change drastically when the fog rolls in or out, so layers are always a great option. See today’s weather here.
