Wag! Walkers know Shepherd Park

Shepherd Park is a highly walkable neighborhood located on the northwest side of Washington D.C. and about a 20-minute drive from the downtown area. Residents can reach local schools and the magnificent Rock Creek Park on foot within a few minutes of their home in Shepherd Park. The east border has a commercial corridor, Georgia Avenue, with plenty of local businesses including restaurants and convenience shops that are also accessible on foot. 


During winter months, dog walkers should keep warm coats and good footwear readily available as cold, snowy conditions are prevalent and walkways can be icy. Severe winter storms with heavy snowfall are rare but can occur and may be exacerbated by Atlantic storm systems. Avoid severe winter weather systems by having some indoor play and exercise with your pup! Summers are hot and humid. Be cautious of thunderstorms that are common during warmer months and can create hazardous conditions for pedestrians and pets.

What is the terrain like in Shepherd Park?

Shepherd Park is bordered by Eastern Avenue on the northeast side, Georgia Avenue on the east side, Rock Creek Park on the west, and the Walter Reed Hospital on the south side. The neighborhood is heavily vegetated with large shade trees creating a canopy over sidewalks and residential streets with beautiful gardens on private properties. Keeping in context with the abundant flora, east-west streets are frequently named for flowers and trees. 


Homes are set on elevated ground above the street level. There is a great diversity of architecture in the area. Some homes are quite large, elaborate, and sprawling while others are fairly moderate in size and character. 


The terrain in Shepherd Park has some gentle inclines, but no significant steep slopes to climb up when strolling around with your dog. Most areas have sidewalks creating safe walking paths for people and pets, but some areas do not have sidewalks, so exercise caution on these roads. 

How many greenways are there in Shepherd Park?

Rock Creek Park is located on the west border of Shepherd Park. This huge greenway provides 1,754 acres of natural wooded space and miles of developed hiking trails. Even the most active pup will be able to shed some energy on the plentiful paths in this park. A variety of flora and fauna grace the park and dogs should stay on a leash to keep from becoming lost in this vast area. The trail system is so extensive that it is recommended that you take note of local trail maps to ensure you are aware of your location and the length of proposed hikes. Rock Creek runs through the area and can have treacherous banks after heavy rainfall, so use caution.

Shepherd Park contains a park of the same name with a playground and sports fields and facilities. There are a few short paved paths in the park to access the amenities and some open spaces to visit with your pooch.
