Wag! Walkers know Barry Farm

Barry Farm is a residential neighborhood located on the southeast side of Washington, D.C. There are several churches and a recreation center in and near the neighborhood. A corner market is conveniently located in the community and a commercial area to the north, along the Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, has many shops, eateries, and services, including an animal hospital that is within walking distance for Barry Farms residents. 


If you like to take your dog for daily constitutionals, you will enjoy mild temperatures for most of the year, however, sub-freezing temperatures occur in winter and extreme humidity can make summer days difficult for walking with your pet. Have a warm coat for winter walks and adjust the time of day you take your dog out to avoid summertime heat. Rain gear is also useful as Washington experiences more than its fair share of rainy days due to its proximity to the coast.

What is the terrain like in Barry Farm?

Barry Farm is a residential, developed neighborhood located east of the Anacostia River and is bordered by the Southeast Freeway on the north, the Suitland Parkway on the west and south, and the Fort Stanton community on the west. The main freeways on two sides create an impediment to on foot travel and freeways should only be crossed at a pedestrian crossing on overpasses. 

The neighborhood has apartment buildings and townhouses, many of which are public housing complexes. The neighborhood terrain is hilly and some of the inclines are very long. Trekking uphill on long slopes during icy conditions can be difficult. Adjust your schedule and footwear to meet conditions. 

The neighborhood has separate sidewalks for pedestrians, so you don't have to share the road with local traffic. Lots of large trees in the area provide shade and shelter. Keep your dog leashed when walking near traffic and use caution at intersections and in heavily trafficked thoroughfares on the borders of the community.

How many greenways are there in Barry Farm?

The Avalon Playground is located east of Barry Farm and is within easy walking distance. The green space has lots of sports facilities and fields, the Fort Stanton Recreation center, a pool, basketball and tennis courts, ball fields, and playgrounds. Paved paths in the area are good places to walk with your dog. You can access the Fort Circle park system from this area which extends to the north. This series of civil war defense earthworks is a beautiful, wooded natural greenway.  

Trails run through the parks. Some are hard surfaced and are often shared with cyclists while others are dirt surfaced. Nature trails can have treacherous footing when wet weather occurs, so use caution. Because these defense systems were built on the elevated ground, you can experience some steep climbs. Be prepared for some strenuous hiking in some places. You must keep your dog leashed in these national parks and be prepared to clean up after them.
