Wag! Walkers know Navy Yard

The Navy Yard is a southeast neighborhood of Washington, D.C., located north of the Anacostia River and also known as the Near Southeast neighborhood. The region is so named because of the Washington Navy Yards which are located here. Navy Yard is a residential and commercial urban neighborhood with lots of businesses, shops, services, and restaurants located throughout it. The region is known for its active adult entertainment district and nightlife with several clubs and bars located in the area. There is also a sports stadium, sports fields, and a school in the Navy Yard neighborhood.

Pedestrians and pets in the Navy Yard community will have to watch out for variable weather that affects much of the Washington D.C. region. Cold winters require warm outerwear and warm summers may mean adjusting your walking schedule with your pup to avoid the hottest part of the day. You should also be aware of summer thunderstorms, Atlantic hurricane systems, and occasional winter blizzard conditions. 

What is the terrain like in Navy Yard?

Navy Yard is bordered by the Southeast Freeway on its north side, the Anacostia River on the south side, South Capitol Street on the west side, and Pennsylvania Avenue on the east side. This neighborhood has lots of historic and older industrial buildings with plenty of redevelopment taking place to convert these structures into residential and commercial buildings. Construction sites can create hazards for pedestrians and pets if debris and building materials are present and excavated areas exposed.  

The neighborhood has multi-story and low rise apartment buildings, row houses, as well as retail and office buildings. There are separate sidewalks throughout the region which create separate walkways for people and their pets. The terrain is fairly flat and level and there are no steep treks uphill for people walking their dogs to contend with. The neighborhood is not very densely landscaped and has lots of pavement and traffic. 

How many greenways are there in Navy Yard?

The Lansburgh Dog Park is located just a few blocks to the west of the Navy Yard neighborhood and is easily accessible on foot for local canines and their owners. This off-leash dog park has separate areas for large and small dogs, so if you have a small, shy, or senior pup, your dog has the opportunity to play with pups of their own size and activity level. The park has a water supply and waste bags provided and is open from 7AM to 7PM.

Another area dog park is the Yards Dog Park located along the Anacostia River. This enclosed dog run allows your pup to play off-leash and dogs are welcome in the adjacent park on a leash.  

The Canal Park is located at the site of a former bus parking lot in the neighborhood and has some open lawns, water fountains, restaurants, and paved pedestrian paths around it where you can take your dog for a stroll.
