Denise M. Spielman

Denise is a founding member of the Friends of Upper Douglass Dog Park. Started as a group to simply improve park grounds and facilities, it has since expanded into an organization that also seeks to recognize and balance the needs of dogs, their owners and walkers, and the park neighbors. Denise, a 25 year resident of San Francisco, brings to her role a lifelong love of animals, a deep respect for the rights of the community, an appreciation of the social diversity of users of SF parks, and a zeal for accomplishing ongoing improvement through communication and collaboration between established city organizations and motivated grass-root volunteers.
