Wag! Walkers know Ivy City

Ivy City is an industrial neighborhood with some residential and commercial activity in the northeast region of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood has recently undergone redevelopment with the development of residential accommodations, trendy eateries, and nightclubs, making it a popular entertainment district destination. There are some retail shops and services within walking distance that include a large chain pet store where local dog owners can pick up supplies and tasty treats for their pups. Your canine companions are welcome to visit the store with you providing they are vaccinated and licensed.聽

The neighborhood is walkable, however, pet owners should be prepared for different weather conditions. Summers are hot and humid and you may want to walk earlier or later in the day to avoid the heat. Winters are cold and light snowfall is common which can make for icy sidewalks. Wear warm outerwear and good footwear during chilly months to stay comfortable.

What is the terrain like in Ivy City?

Ivy City is triangular-shaped neighborhood with Amtrak rail yards on the north border, Mount Olivet Cemetery on the southeast, and Gallaudet University on the southwest side. The railyard and tracks are a prominent feature and are not a walkable, safe area for dog walkers.聽


The neighborhood has a developed industrial landscape with little in the way of trees and greenery and lots of pavement and multi-story low rise buildings. However, the cemetery and large parks on the southeast side and manicured grounds of the university provide adjacent green spaces for strolls with your pooch. Single-family homes and low rise apartment buildings are situated on the district's south side and many former warehouses have been converted to loft and studio apartments.聽


The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills for pedestrians and pets to navigate in the region. Sidewalks are lined with trees so you don't have to share the road with traffic when walking with your furry friend.

How many greenways are there in Ivy City?

Within Ivy City, there are limited greenways, however, a small open greenway with a paved trail and play structure are located on the south side along West Virginia Avenue.

The US National Arboretum is situated on the community's southeast side and provides 446 acres of beautiful greenway. Described as a 鈥渓iving museum鈥 the park is full of beautiful trees, shrubs, and plants interlaced with walking trails. There are miles of trails with views of the beautiful flora and the river that you and your dog will appreciate when walking. There is a wooded section on the west side of the park with more open manicured grounds on the east side. Dogs are allowed on the pathways, although not on the tram, but must be kept leashed.聽

The Langston Playground and Anacostia Park are located to the south of the arboretum and provide additional green space with recreational grounds, trails, and natural areas to explore with your pup.
