Wag! Walkers know Fort Dupont

Fort DuPont is located on the east banks of the Anacostia River on the south side of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood is mostly residential with many churches and schools within walking distance for residents. There are not a lot of shops or services in the area, however, there is a tennis center and a large park with green space in the region. 


Dog walkers in Fort Dupont should be prepared for cold winters with sub-freezing temperatures and some snow accumulation. Warm outerwear and good footwear will help you contend with cold temperatures and regular light snowfall. Summers are hot and humid. When temperatures are high, avoid walking at the height of the day, pack water to avoid dehydration on longer treks for both you and your pet, and avoid overexertion. Severe thunderstorms can occur in warmer months and present a hazard, so wait for them to pass before venturing out with your pet.

What is the terrain like in Fort Dupont?

Fort Dupont is bordered by Fort Dupont Park on the south and East Capitol Street on the north. Minnesota Avenue is located on the west side and Texas Avenue is on the east side. This is a developed urban neighborhood with roads in the area that curve and create a nontraditional street pattern. A tennis center located on the north side of the community has a recreational facility and manicured grounds.


Large greenways on the south and northeast sides of the community provide natural landscaping in the area. Older brick structures dominate the landscape with multi-family housing complexes, apartment buildings, and some single-family dwellings. Properties are well landscaped with mature trees in yards and along streets. Sidewalks line residential streets providing a separate location for dog walkers to stroll with their pets. 


The region is hilly and some areas have steep inclines. If you or your dog have trouble negotiating hills, you should plan your walk to avoid theses steeper grades.

How many greenways are there in Fort Dupont?

Fort Dupont Park is located on the south side of the Fort Dupont neighborhood and is one of the largest parks in the Washington D.C. area with 376 acres of natural wooded landscape. The park is a watershed of the Anacostia River. A concert is held here annually that draws visitors from surrounding areas. Other features and activities in the park include indoor and outdoor skating, recreational facilities, and picnic sites. The park is known for its excellent hiking and biking trail which has many sub trails, creating a network of paths for you and your dog to explore. 


Trails connect to other area parks for a total of about 10 miles of hiking paths. Keep your dog leashed on the trail and be prepared to clean up after your pet. 


Fort Chaplin Park is a natural wooded area between a tennis center and elementary school on the north side of the neighborhood. This natural greenway also has trails to trek with your furry friend.
