Wag! Walkers know Pleasant Plains

Pleasant Plains is a central Washington, D.C. neighborhood located northeast of the downtown area. It is sometimes referred to as Howard Town, as Howard University is located here. There are several schools as well as the Howard University campus and facilities, a recreation center, and sports fields located in the district. There are several shops, restaurants, and other services located within walking distance for area residents. These commercial activities tend to be concentrated along Georgia Avenue which runs through the middle of the region or on Sherman Avenue along the west side.  

The weather in Pleasant Plains changes depending on the season and severe weather can occur throughout the year. Winters are cold and snowy, requiring warm outerwear for dog walkers venturing out with their pooches. Spring and summer seasons see frequent thunderstorms. Fall is hurricane season on the Atlantic coast and because of Washington's proximity, hurricane systems can cause rare, but occasional severe weather in the area. 

What is the terrain like in Pleasant Plains?

Pleasant Plains is bordered by the McMillan Reservoir on the east side, Sherman Avenue on the west side, W Street on the south side, and Harvard Street on its north side.


The landscape is dominated by the Howard University campus buildings and facilities which occupy much of the region. There are several sports fields associated with the campus and the recreation center in the area. A commercial corridor runs north-south through the middle of the community and the main thoroughfare on the west side is also developed with businesses. The campus and local businesses are more heavily trafficked areas than the residential streets. 


Residential streets are heavily landscaped with mature trees that provide lots of shade. Sidewalks line roads and create safe walking spaces. There are some hills, although the inclines are not steep or difficult to climb. Residences in the area consist of low rise apartments, duplexes, and row houses that have attractive exteriors and yards.

How many greenways are there in Pleasant Plains?

Pleasant Plain's canines can take a short walk south to visit the Gage Eckington Dog Park with their owners who are required to supervise their pups in the enclosed park. There are two sections and the fenced areas are double gated for safety. Dogs playing in the park are expected to be well socialized and non-aggressive. Baggies for picking up your dog's waste and garbage receptacles are provided as well. 


Also within walking distance, the Bruce Monroe Community Park is a few blocks to the north and has open areas, recreational facilities, and some paved walking paths for you and your dog to stroll. 


Longer natural hikes are provided in Rock Creek Park which is a short drive to the northwest. This park system has 200 acres and miles of trails to explore. Your furry friend should remain leashed to avoid encounters with local wildlife and other users which can startle your pup.
