Wag! Walkers know Anacostia

Anacostia is a neighborhood located in the southeast quadrant of Washington D.C. The neighborhood is historic and has many features and amenities including a museum, arts center, library, live theatre, two hospitals, a sports arena, and historic sites. There is a commercial area located on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue with restaurants, shops, and other services that are accessible on foot.聽


Like many historic neighborhoods, this region was designed when pedestrian travel was common and is highly walkable with residences near destinations. The world's largest chair, a 19.5 foot sculpture, is also located in the commercial area.聽


聽Dog walkers in Anacostia should be prepared for occasional severe weather. Although not frequent, winter blizzards can occur and the remnant of hurricane systems can also affect the walkability of the area. Summers are hot and humid and frequently accompanied by severe thunderstorms. Avoid extreme heat which can cause heat-related illnesses and severe storms which are dangerous to people and pets.

What is the terrain like in Anacostia?

Anacostia is named for the Anacostia River. The neighborhood is situated on the eastern banks of this waterway and there are greenways with an interesting commercial area near the river. Interstate 295 and several main thoroughfares run through the west section of this neighborhood and must be navigated by pedestrians to access the waterfront and green spaces.聽聽


Anacostia is a historic district and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many homes and buildings in the area date back to the 1800s and reflect the architecture of this period. There are single-family dwellings and townhouses in the region which is well landscaped. Natural areas along the river and, on the east side where a reservoir is located, provide trees and green spaces.聽


The area has separate sidewalks for pedestrians and the terrain is relatively level with no steep hills for you and your canine companion to climb when strolling the district.

How many greenways are there in Anacostia?

Anacostia Park is located on the riverfront and is accessible on foot for residents who use pedestrian ways to cross the freeway located on the west side of Anacostia. There are trails along the riverfront for strolling with your pet, but watch out for cyclists who use the trail. This park has some unique features like an aquatic garden and roller skating facility. There are also more traditional pursuits like playgrounds, hiking trails, sports facilities and fields, and picnicking, boating, and fishing sites.

To the east of the neighborhood, there is a natural area located around the Anacostia Reservoir and adjacent to the Anacostia Playground. The playground has sports facilities and fields and some open areas.

The Ketcham Recreational Center is also located in the neighborhood and has open green spaces and paved paths for strolls. The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site has beautifully landscaped property with paved walking paths and large shady trees.
