National Park Service February 24, 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Regulations, Areas of the National Park Service, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Dog Management
Document Number: 2016-03731
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-24
Agency: Department of the Interior, National Park Service
The National Park Service proposes to amend its special regulations for Golden Gate National Recreation Area regarding dog walking. The rule would apply to 22 locations within the park and would designate areas within these locations for on-leash and regulated (i.e., voice and sight control) off-leash dog walking. Areas in these 22 locations that are not designated as open to dogs would be closed to dogs, except for service animals in accordance with National Park Service regulations. The rule would modify and, in some circumstances, relax the National Park System-wide pet regulations for these 22 locations. To the extent not modified by this rule, dog walking in all NPS-managed areas within the park would continue to be regulated under National Park System-wide pet regulations.
