Wag! Walkers know Shipley

Shipley is a southeast neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Located southeast of the Anacostia River, the neighborhood is not near to the downtown core, but has local businesses that are accessible to residents on foot. Several small commercial areas in and around Shipley provide local restaurants, a liquor store, grocery stores, banking services, and other amenities. A community and arts center is located on the neighborhood's south side and is a venue for local events. 聽

Avoid extreme weather which occurs in Washington when walking with your dog. Very humid conditions are unpleasant for dog walkers and pets. Sub-freezing temperatures and snowy conditions can be exacerbated by Atlantic storm systems that create additional moisture and high winds can cause dangerous conditions with poor visibility and extreme cold. Thunderstorms during warmer months are also hazardous for exposed pedestrians and pets. Take shelter when extreme weather conditions occur.

What is the terrain like in Shipley?

The Shipley neighborhood is bordered by the Oxon Run Park on the south, the Suitland Parkway on the northeast, and the Douglass neighborhood on the west. Most of the area is comprised of apartment buildings and complexes with low rise, brick exteriors. There is a separate section on the east side with semi-detached townhomes and a senior's complex. 聽


The neighborhood has gentle hills which make the area pretty and make dog walking more interesting with curving roads. Fortunately, there are no steep inclines, and pedestrian walkers do not have to trek up major elevation changes.聽 The area is heavily landscaped with lots of trees lining residential streets and on private properties.聽


Separate sidewalks and grass berms create safe places for walking with your pet. However, you'll still need to keep your dog leashed and be careful at intersections, especially on thoroughfares on the borders and near commercial areas and facilities.

How many greenways are there in Shipley?

The Oxon Run Parkway runs along the south border of Shipley and it is easy for pedestrians and pets to reach on foot from anywhere in the neighborhood. The greenway extends for 126 acres and contains heavily wooded deciduous forest and wetland as well as floodplains and springs along the Oxun Run Creek and ravine. The heavy forest canopy makes this park shady and cool during summer and is a great place for a walk to beat the heat. The trees also provide some shelter from windy and rainy weather, but can create a hazard when high winds and heavy precipitation occur. 聽


The park is maintained by the National Park Service and is the site of the last remaining McAllen Magnolia Bogs in the area. All dogs must remain leashed in national parks, so make sure you have your dog securely leashed and under control. Trails in the area are mostly dirt surfaced and conditions can vary with weather.
