Wag! Walkers know Congress Heights

Congress Heights is a neighborhood on the south side of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood is walkable with a high school and elementary school, both of which contain recreational grounds and facilities. Nearby parks and other services are available as well. There is a business district located along Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue with restaurants and shops that are also accessible on foot.


Dog owners in Congress Heights need to be prepared for some inclement weather when walking. 聽Winter months see sub-freezing temperatures and some snowfall. Warm coats and footwear are advisable for dog walkers to stay warm. Severe blizzards are rare but should be avoided. Summer months are hot and humid. When temperatures are extreme, try to walk your pup earlier or later in the day to avoid the heat, have plenty of water available, and avoid overexertion. Remember to check forecasts to avoid severe thunderstorms which also occur during warmer months.

What is the terrain like in Congress Heights?

Congress Heights is a neighborhood with an irregularity in shade and is bounded by Interstate 295 on its west side, Mississippi Avenue on the southside, the Douglass neighborhood on the east, and the Barry Farm neighborhood on the north.聽

Most of the area is residential, although there are schools, recreation centers, parks, and a commercial district also situated in the region. Residential dwellings are older with historic features reflecting the periods in which they were constructed. Homes consists of low rise apartments, duplexes, and row housing. Properties are well landscaped and there are lots of mature shade trees and nicely appointed yards in the area that make the community attractive for a stroll with your pooch.聽

The area has sidewalks along roads, so you don't need to share streets with local traffic. There are also some gentle inclines that are not particularly steep or difficult to climb for on foot travelers.

How many greenways are there in Congress Heights?

There are school and recreational grounds and greenways in the neighborhood with sports facilities and fields. There are also some walkways for strolls with your pup. 聽Larger greenways are located on the outskirts of the region.聽

The Oxon Run National Parkway on the south side provides natural habitat with 126 acres of preserved wetlands and treed woodlands. There are trails through the area, although the trail system is under development, and not all trails connect. Keep your dog leashed in this parkway to avoid frightening wildlife and be cautious of the Oxun Run creek during heavy rainfall when water levels can make banks unstable. 聽

The Shepherd Parkway on the west side of Congress Heights is another natural, undeveloped greenway with wooded areas. There are no maintained trails in the greenway, but some natural trails may be available. Use unmaintained trails with caution as footing can be treacherous, especially after heavy rain or snowfall.
