Wag! Walkers know Van Ness

Van Ness is an area located on the northwest side of Washington, D.C. The neighborhood has several international embassies and the University of the District of Columbia located within its boundaries. Many restaurants, bars, and coffee shops are located nearby and residents can reach them on foot. A unique natural pet supply store is located a fair hike to the southwest and a local veterinarian is located to the southeast in the adjacent neighborhood. This district is a walkable region聽with plenty of services and interesting destinations. 聽


Be prepared for wet weather in spring and fall, muggy summers, and cold winters. Light snow falls during winter months and you should have good footwear on strolls with your canine companion. Humidity in the summer may require you to adjust your schedule and take your dog out earlier or later to avoid high temperatures. Thunderstorms occur in warmer weather and produce high winds and heavy rain. When these storms are imminent, take shelter.聽

What is the terrain like in Van Ness?

Van Ness is bordered by Yuma Street聽on the north side, Reno Road on its west side, Connecticut Avenue on the east side, and Tilden Street on the south side. The area has a population of about 1,599 people and is a mixed-use area with commercial areas, multi-story offices, a college campus, embassies, multistory apartment buildings, and single-family homes. The university campus is a prominent feature in the area with campus building, facilities, and grounds. 聽

The terrain in Van Ness is hilly with some inclines which are not very steep, but elevation changes need to be negotiated on a stroll through the neighborhood. If you or your dog has mobility issues, you may need to adjust your route to avoid steeper grades.聽

The Van Ness region has separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets to use so that you don't need to share the road with local traffic and the district is well landscaped with beautiful grounds on the campus and embassy properties.聽

How many greenways are there in Van Ness?

The Melvin C. Hazen Park on the south side of Van Ness is a branch of the larger Rock Creek Park with a wooded area around a tributary stream and ravine that feeds the larger Rock Creek system. This park section is easily reached on foot. The Soapstone Valley Park branch of Rock Creek Park is also located nearby and connects to the main section of the Rock Creek Park on its east side. The trail system is extensive and provides miles of interconnected trails, taking you along the creek and through heavily wooded areas. Dogs must remain on a leash in the park and you should be prepared to clean up after them.

For some off-leash fun, check out the Newark Street Dog Park in the Glover Archbold Park. This great park has separate areas for large and small dogs, a water supply, waste facilities, and the odd stray tennis ball from the nearby courts!
