Wag! Walkers know Shaw

Shaw is a vibrant entertainment, residential, and commercial district located on the north side of Washington D.C. Shops, restaurants, and bars are located along the U Street corridor on the north side of the area, extending into the Shaw area, and lining 7th Street. Noted historic theatres, the Lincoln Theater and Howard Theatre, are still active in the community with performances and events and there is a statue celebrating Duke Ellington nearby. 


Commercial activity in repurposed older buildings has created unique shopping and entertainment venues. There are schools in the area including Howard University. With so many interesting walking destinations, the community is highly walkable and on foot travel in the area is common. 


Weather in Washington D.C. is not always cooperative for pedestrians and pets on foot. Winters are cold and snowy with icy walkways to contend with. Summers are hot and humid and you should avoid taking your dog out without having adequate water supplies.

What is the terrain like in Shaw?

Shaw is bordered by Florida Avenue on the north, 15th Street to the west, First Street on the east, and M Street and Massachusetts Avenue on the north side. This region is a historic, developed, urban neighborhood with plenty of commercial activity throughout. 


The residences consist of Victorian row houses and low rise apartments buildings. Sidewalks are located along streets, so there is no need for dog walkers and pets to share the road with traffic. Some areas have brick sidewalks keeping in character with the historic feel of the area. There is lots of mature landscaping on public and private properties with large shade trees and attractive gardens.  


Some of the streets in the area are quite narrow due to the age of the district. The terrain in the district is fairly level and there are no steep hills for people and pups to climb while walking through the community.

How many greenways are there in Shaw?

The Shaw Dog Park and Cardozo Playground are located in Shaw. The dog park is a particular attraction for pet owners with a large 15,000 square foot enclosure. This off-leash greenway features two areas, one for small, senior, or physically challenged pets and another for larger and more active dogs. The adjacent playground features sports facilities such as athletic fields, basketball courts, a skateboard park, and playground and open areas.

The Kennedy Recreation Center has multiple sports facilities and grounds with open areas and trees with some paved paths for dog walkers to take advantage of when strolling through the neighborhood.

Larger natural areas and parks such as the manicured property of the National Arboretum to the east and the natural landscape in Rock Creek Park to the north can be reached by vehicle and have many acres of greenway and miles of trails to enjoy with your pet.
