Coyote Sightings

Much like the neighboring Presidio, we have seen an increase in the presence of coyotes in the area. Warning signs have been posted at the park and people are encouraged to keep their pets on a leash and leave the area if a coyote approaches. Coyotes are generally afraid of people and can usually be scared off by a shout or waving your arms.

  • If reporting a threatening wildlife situation, call San Francisco Animal Care and Control: 415-554-6364; e-mail

  • To report a non-emergency coyote sighting, e-mail the date, time, location and any other details of the sighting to: SFACC maintains a data base of these tracking reports.

Increase In Park Vandalism

Over the last few months, there has been a major increase in vandalism, principally broken beer bottles and cans along with damaged playground equipment. And sadly, the newly installed donor recognition circle has been burned.

These incidents have been reported to SFPD Northern Station and SFRPD management. Supervisor Stefani's office has pledged support for increased police and SF Park Rangers patrols. We ask our park supporters to be vigilant as well. Here's how you can help:

  • If witnessing vandalism in progress, call the SFPD non-emergency phone number: 415-553-0123

  • If reporting evidence of vandalism, call San Francisco Park Rangers: 415-242 6390

  • If reporting a physical safety issue or hazardous situation in the park, call 311
