Wag! Walkers know Douglass

The residential neighborhood of Douglass is located on the southeast side of Washington, D.C. There is an elementary school, a community center with a pool, and a shopping area located locally within walking distance. The shopping area contains a large grocery store and several restaurants, shops, and services available to locals on foot. 

When traveling the area on foot, dog walkers and their pets need a variety of outerwear to stay comfortable in various weather conditions. Rain gear is recommended for spring and fall seasons, warm winter wear for sub-freezing winter months, and cool, breathable fabric for hot, humid summers. Severe thunderstorms occur in summer and can present hazardous conditions for exposed pedestrians and their pets. After heavy rainfall, local trails can have treacherous footing if they are not hard surfaced. In the fall, the remnants of Atlantic storm systems can create extreme weather conditions and occasional winter blizzards should be also be avoided.

What is the terrain like in Douglass?

Douglass is bordered by the Suitland Parkway on the northeast, the Washington Hebrew cemetery on the west side, Mississippi Avenue on the south side, and 19th Street SE on the east side. The neighborhood is situated on the highest point in southeast Washington, atop a hilly ridge. While there are some inclines in the area, they are not steep, and people and their pups can get around without over exerting themselves on climbs up hills. 


The area has a variety of dwellings including apartment complexes, row houses, duplexes, and single-family homes on well-landscaped properties. This neighborhood has undergone some redevelopment in recent years and is becoming a higher end neighborhood. A large Jewish cemetery on the west side provides manicured green space while a natural wooded park on the south side provides more greenery and large trees nearby. 


The area has separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets and tree-lined grassy berms make safe walkways for strolls through the neighborhood.

How many greenways are there in Douglass?

Douglass is bordered on the south side by the Oxon Run Park. This 126-acre nature preserve is heavily wooded with deciduous trees and wetlands. There are plenty of trails running through it to explore with your dog. Remember that dirt surfaced trails can be treacherous after heavy rainfall and banks along the waterway can become unstable, so use caution. Keep your dog leashed in this greenway to be respectful to other users and to avoid disturbing wildlife.

The Avalon Playground can be accessed on foot. It is several blocks north of the Douglass community. This greenway has recreational facilities, sports fields, and is bordered on two sides by naturally treed areas.

Farther to the south, the Barnaby Run Park and recreation areas include a series of parks, a forested creek area, recreational facilities, and trails, making it worth the trip to check out this large contiguous greenway which is a great dog walking location.
