Dog Walkers to march from Ocean Beach to Stern Grove
On Saturday at 10 a.m., opponents of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s proposed Dog Management Plan will convene on Ocean Beach at Sloat Boulevard. The dog walkers and their canine companions will then march along Sloat Boulevard to get to Stern Grove, a City dog park.
According to a press release issued by the organizers of the Mighty Mutt Strut, the route “symbolizes what will happen if the GGNRA’s dog plans go through — people and their dogs will be forced out of the GGNRA and into city parks.”
The walk is meant as a public stand against the GGNRA plan, which would reduce off-leash dog access in 21 parks, including Ocean Beach and Fort Funston. The time period for public comments about the plan ends on May 29.
Petco, Citi Pets and Pet Food Express will have supply stations along the 1.2 mile walk to offer water and treats to the dogs.
The Mighty Mutt Strut is endorsed by: SFDOG, Ocean Beach DOG, Crissy Field Dog, DogPAC of SF, Fort Funston Dog Walkers, SF ProDog, Save Off Leash Dog Walking in the SF Bay Area and Keep Muir Beach Dog Friendly.
