Wag! Walkers know Takoma

Takoma is a neighborhood located on the northwest side of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood is contiguous with Takoma Park, a city in Maryland, and is sometimes confused with this region. There are restaurants, pubs, shops, and other services within walking distance in several locations in the district, especially on the north end of Georgetown Avenue. A theatre and pub are located on 4th Street and there is an aquatic and recreation center in the community that residents can reach on foot.聽

Dog walkers in Takoma will need some warm winter wear as winters are chilly and light snowfall can be expected. Occasional severe winter storms may force you and your pet to stay inside, although these are not frequent. Summers are hot and humid.Try walking your pup early or later in the day and watch out for severe thunderstorms which occur during the warm weather. Atlantic hurricane systems can also affect the area, although they are usually not severe.聽

What is the terrain like in Takoma?

Takoma is bordered by Georgia Avenue on its west side, the Maryland border along the northeast side, and Tuckerman Street on the south side. Most of the neighborhood is a developed, residential urban area with many historic homes, many of which are 100 years old. These vintage homes add character to the neighborhood with Cape-Cod, Colonial, and older bungalows.聽Properties are well landscaped and maintained.聽A few apartment buildings and condominiums are also nearby.聽


Residential streets are quiet and lined with beautiful mature shade trees. There are sidewalks and grass berms on residential streets, providing safe walkways for pedestrians and pets. Piney Branch Road is the main thoroughfare that crosses the neighborhood at an angle, creating oddly angled intersections. Train tracks along the northeast side can present an impediment to on foot travel with your pet and should only be crossed at designated, controlled crossings. The terrain is flat and there are no steep hills to hike up with your hound.

How many greenways are there in Takoma?

Takoma dog walkers can take their pets for an adventure in the 1,754-acre Rock Creek Park, which is just a few blocks to the west. The park follows the watercourse of Rock Creek and features heavily wooded areas and natural terrain. There are miles of main trails and connecting trails throughout the park for walking with your pup. The terrain on some trails can be rough and varies with weather conditions, so use caution and have good footwear for hikes. Watch out for cyclists in the parks who also use the trails and keep your dog leashed for safety.

The Jesup Blair Local Park is located just north of Takoma and also features natural areas and plenty of sports facilities and fields. Paved trails provide more secure footing for pedestrians and pets when wet weather affects trail conditions. The park is 15 acres and has a playground, soccer field, basketball courts, tennis courts, an amphitheater, and picnic sites.
