Wag! Walkers know Petworth

Pentworth is a peaceful residential and commercial neighborhood located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood is described by locals as being highly walkable and friendly with a “porch culture,” a community where pedestrians stroll and visit with their neighbors, ideal for dog walkers and their pets. 


A library, schools, churches, restaurants, shops, and bars are all situated within easy walking distance in the neighborhood. Other unique features of the district include public artworks which include murals and sculptures as well as interesting historic sites. A farmers market is held in the neighborhood weekly and several annual festivals and events are hosted by this active community. 


Pedestrians and pets need to be prepared for varying weather conditions. Winters are cold and can be snowy, so warm outerwear is a must when taking your pet out during these chilly months. Summers are hot and humid while thunderstorms are common and can pose a hazard to exposed people and their furry friends.

What is the terrain like in Petworth?

Petworth is an irregularly shaped neighborhood with main thoroughfares intersecting the region at angles and two traffic circles with central park features. A golf course and Rock Creek Cemetery are located on the neighborhood's borders and provide manicured green spaces on the eastern edge of the region.  

The residential areas are comprised of attractive historic single-family houses and row homes or terraced houses. The neighborhood's streets are quiet, for the most part, with a large shady tree canopy and well landscaped properties. Sidewalks and grass berms line roads and provide safe walkways for people and pets. 

Route 29, also referred to as Georgia Avenue, transects the neighborhood from north-south and is lined with institutions and commercial activity. Be careful crossing this main road with your dog, choose marked pedestrian crossings, and keep your pup securely leashed. The terrain slopes somewhat but inclines are gentle and there are no steep hills to trek up when enjoying a  daily walk. 

How many greenways are there in Petworth?

Upshur Dog Park is located in Petworth and is a fenced, off-leash dog run where local pups can play with other dogs or enjoy a game of fetch with their owners. Pets need to follow Department of Recreation guidelines for off-leash dog parks and should be well socialized with other people and pets. 

Both traffic circles in Petworth have central green features with paved walking trails, trees, and open lawns for strolls with your pup. Piney Branch Park and adjacent Rock Creek Park can be accessed easily on the southwest corner of Petworth. These greenways provide over 1,700 acres of natural space with miles of trails to explore. Dogs should be leashed on the trails and watch for other users like joggers and cyclists who also share the hiking paths in this park. There is plenty of wildlife in the area, so keep a good grip on your pooch as small critters can be distracting to your dog.
