Wag! Walkers know American University Park

American University Park is a neighborhood of northwest Washington, D.C. named for the college situated there. The campus’s art center, Washington College of Law, and an elementary school are located within walking distance in the neighborhood, as well as several commercial businesses and services along Massachusetts Avenue that residents can reach on foot. 


Area canines and their owners can enjoy daily walks if they are prepared for some inclement weather and avoid severe weather systems. Cold, snowy winters require warm outerwear and suitable footwear for when conditions are icy. Humid summers mean that you may need to avoid walking with your pup in the middle of the day when the heat can be extreme. Thunderstorms occur regularly in warmer months and can present hazardous conditions for pedestrians and pets because of high winds and torrential downpours. Wait until these storms pass before venturing out on foot.

What is the terrain like in American University Park?

The Maryland border is situated on the northwest side of American University Park with River Road on the northeast side, Massachusetts Avenue on the southwest side, Nebraska Avenue on the southeast side, and Tenleytown to the east.  


This neighborhood features some of the highest elevations in the Washington area with the highest being situated in the Tenleytown neighborhood to the east. As such, there is some hilly terrain in the district, although steep slopes are not typical and most inclines are gentle and not too difficult to climb.  


The residential homes were developed in the 1920s and reflect a wide variety of architectural styles from that period. Front porches are common and driveways tend to be located on the back of properties which gives the community a close-knit, friendly feel. Residential streets are lined with large trees that create a shady canopy for walking your pup along the separate sidewalks.

How many greenways are there in American University Park?

The main greenway on the south side of American University Park is Turtle Park, also referred to as Friendship Park. A recreation center, ball diamonds, sports fields, and other facilities are located here and there are paved paths on the property for walking with your dog. 


Several blocks west, you and your furry friend can reach the Little Falls Stream Valley Park which is a large, natural greenway with lots of trees located in a reservoir. A hiking trail runs along the lake and is a great place to take a long walk with your pup. 


A few blocks to the southeast, dog owners and their dogs can access the Glover Archbold Park and the trails running through this beautiful greenway. There is an off-leash dog park associated with this region. The Newark Street Dog Park can be found here and features separate large and small dog areas. This is a bustling and popular park and you may want to plan your trips during off-peak hours to avoid waiting.
