Hillcrest in Washington, D.C. is a residential neighborhood located on the southeast side of the city. There is a library in the community and a community center to the south as well as a shopping and commercial area with restaurants, shops, and other services also accessible for pedestrians. 

Area pups and their owners can enjoy walking to the amenities in the area, however, should be prepared for various weather and fluctuating temperatures from season to season. Summers are hot, and winters are cold. Warm coats and footwear will make winter walking more palatable and avoiding midday heat is advised when the mercury rises in summer. Thunderstorms in the summer should be avoided as they create hazardous conditions. Spring and fall rain can produce soggy conditions, so an umbrella and rain jacket is a good idea to help you stay dry. If your pup doesn't like to get wet, you can even get rain gear for your pet.

Hillcrest is an irregularly shaped neighborhood bordered by Park Drive on the north side, 36th Place on the east side, Naylor Road on the west side, and Alabama Avenue on the south. Most of the area is made up of attractive single-family dwellings on well-landscaped properties. Architecture in the area reflects Craftsman, Federal Revival, Ramblers, Colonial and Tudor Revival styles. The west side has some low rise apartments with large lawns on the grounds. 

Hillcrest is situated on a hill and traveling out of the area on foot will mean descending and ascending an incline. The neighborhood itself has some gentle inclines but no steep slopes to trek up. 

The area has separate sidewalks along residential roads bordered by grassy berms to separate them from streets. The sidewalks and berms create safe walking locations for pedestrians and pets. Wooded areas on the community's north and west side create natural treed spaces and provide shade and tranquility to adjacent homes.
