This past weekend Curbed attended the grand opening celebration for the Rincon Hill Dog Park, which is conveniently located on the corner of Beale and Bryant streets in South Beach. The park consists of two areas for dogs, one of which is exclusively for small dogs. According to the park's Facebook page, over 400 visitors came out to celebrate the opening, and the park fund raised $2,854 towards maintaining the park. "It is so wonderful to finally have a neighborhood park where our community can gather and meet," said Jamie Whitaker, Treasurer for the Friends of the Rincon Hill Dog Park community group. "I'm very thankful that Caltrans made the capital expenditure as part of the landscaping project at the end of their Bay Bridge Western Approach work. I'm thankful the City and DPW agreed to lease the property from Caltrans and trusted that neighbors would provide volunteers and money through ongoing fundraising for the expenses and lease to operate and maintain the park. I'm thankful to Sally Stephens and company for agreeing to act as our community group's 501(c)(3) non-profit fiscal sponsor as a pilot, test run for their group." The park's open on weekdays from 6am to 10pm and from 8am to 10pm on weekends.
