Wag! Walkers know Benning Heights

Benning Heights is located east of the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C. This neighborhood has many amenities, inducing a pool and recreation center. There is nearby shopping in the adjacent Benning neighborhood to the north where a large shopping center is situated. Shops, restaurants, a grocery store, banking, and other services are readily available there and can be reached on foot.聽

Pet owners in Benning Heights enjoy plenty of warm, sunny days for walking their dogs in, but need to be prepared for some cooler and wet weather as well. Rain gear is a must, especially in transition seasons. Warm winter outerwear is required if you plan to walk with your dog throughout the sub-freezing winter months. Some summer days are excessively humid and you should avoid taking your dog out in the middle of the day when heat is the most severe. Thunderstorms occur in warmer months and can be accompanied by high winds and heavy rain.聽

What is the terrain like in Benning Heights?

Benning Heights is bordered by Ridge Road on the west, Capitol Street on the north, Benning Road on the east, and Bowen Road on the south. This is a developed urban neighborhood with single-family detached and semi-detached homes and some low rise apartment buildings. Most of the dwellings in the area are of brick construction and are set on well-landscaped properties.聽

The neighborhood is bordered by large wooded parks and a large cemetery is situated in the region. The parks and cemetery provide additional treed space and the community has a very park-like, tranquil setting. The neighborhood is hilly and you may need to hike up or down these inclines. If climbing is an issue, you may want to adjust your route, if possible.聽

Streets in the neighborhood twist and turn and there are several dead ends. Sidewalks are readily available and pedestrians and pets do not need to share the road with traffic.

How many greenways are there in Benning Heights?

Benning Heights is bordered by several Fort Circle parks on its west side. These extend from Fort Chaplin Park in the north to Fort Dupont Park towards the south. These greenways are part of the large Fort Circle park system. This series of parks are situated on what was formerly civil war earthworks defenses and are now beautiful wooded parks and recreation areas. There tends to be elevation changes in these wooded areas as they were once hilltop forts.聽


The parks are interlaced with interconnecting trails. Some trails are hard surfaced and some are dirt. Dirt trails can become unstable in wet weather, so use caution. The parks are maintained by the Federal government and dogs must remain on a leash in the national park system. As there is lots of local wildlife in this large greenbelt, that is probably a good idea anyway, so your pup does not take off after small critters and become separated from you.
