Wag! Walkers know Skyland

Skyland is located southeast of the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C. The neighborhood has a large shopping center located on its east side at Alabama Avenue and Naylor Road that is within easy reach for Skyland residents. There's also an elementary school and church in the neighborhood and recreation centers nearby that can also be reached by pedestrians. 

Pet owners who like to walk their dogs daily are in for a variety of weather conditions from cold winters to humid summers, rainy springs, and the occasional storm system. Dog walkers will need warm coats for winter walks and rain gear for wet days. If your dog doesn't like being cold or wet, you can get your pup some outdoor wear too! Be aware of thunderstorms which are frequent in warmer months and occasional winter blizzards that occur later in the year. Wait until dangerous weather clears before trekking out with your canine companion.

What is the terrain like in Skyland?

Skyland is an irregularly shaped neighborhood with Fort Stanton Park on the northwest side, Garfield Heights on the south, and Naylor Road on the east side. A large shopping center is also located on the east border and, while this is a convenient facility for residents to get to, the traffic, pavement, and lack of landscaping do not make it an attractive location for pet walkers and their pups. 


Residential streets in Skyland are more pleasant for walking with mature landscaping on private properties, large trees throughout the neighborhood and along grassy berms, and separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets to use. The residences in the neighborhood are primarily of brick construction with low rise apartment buildings and complexes on the north side. 


The terrain has some gentle hills which make walks in the area more interesting and, as there are no steep inclines, they do not require excessive energy to climb up and down. 

How many greenways are there in Skyland?

Fort Stanton Park is located on the west border of Skyland and extends as part of the Fort Circle park system to the north. These greenways were developed on former civil war earthworks defenses. These hills make for beautiful greenways that are now heavily wooded and often have monuments, memorials, or the remnants of the fort system that provide interesting local history when exploring the park. Maintained and natural trails in these parks are ideal for walking with your dog and there is lots of shade! Be prepared for some elevation changes and be cautious on dirt trails in wet weather.

A short walk to the west, Skyline pedestrians and their pets can visit the Avalon Playground on the south side of the Fort Stanton Park. This greenway has many amenities such as an outdoor pool, recreation center, tennis courts, basketball courts, a ball diamond, open sports fields, and play structures.
