Woodley Park is an affluent neighborhood located on the northwest side of Washington D.C. This neighborhood is highly walkable with a landmark hotel, a variety of restaurants, sidewalk cafes, coffee shops, unique retail shops, and an entertainment and nightlife area available in the district. Former row houses along Connecticut Avenue have been converted to commercial properties and the Smithsonian National Zoo is located on the community's border. 

Hot, humid conditions in summer can make walking uncomfortable and even result in heat-related illness if precautions are not taken. Choose cool times of the day for daily walks. Winters are cold with sub-freezing temperatures that require warm outerwear. Good footwear will help keep you from falls, but remember your dog can slip too! Large dogs especially can be prone to hip injuries on icy surfaces, so use caution. Remember to check forecasts to avoid severe winter and summer storms and take shelter when extreme weather with high winds is imminent.

Woodley Park is bordered by the National Zoo on its east side, Calvert Street on the south, 34th Street on the west, and Woodley and Klingle Roads on the north side. The terrain in the area is mostly level, but there are some inclines, although they are not very steep and are not a significant impediment to dog walkers. There are two notable bridges on the south side of Woodley Park. Taft Bridge and Duke Ellington Bridge provide access over Rock Creek. 

Rock Creek Park and the National Zoo located on the east side of the neighborhood are prominent landscape features in the region. There is metro access, but it is below ground and does not significantly affect pedestrians on the surface. 

Homes in the area consist of single-family and well-appointed row houses, many of which are part of a historic district with beautiful properties. Multistory apartments are located on a section of Connecticut Avenue. Mature landscaping throughout the region gives it a park-like feel.

Woodley Park is bordered by the Rock Creek Park on its east side. The Rock Creek Park Trail runs along the eastern border and this greenway hiking trail and other connecting trails throughout the 2,000 acres of Rock Creek Park provides miles of hard surfaced and dirt trails to explore with your dog. Watch out for joggers and cyclists on Rock Creek's trails. Some areas of Rock Creek are quite secluded and contain local wildlife. Keep your dog leashed, so your pup does not take off after a resident and become lost. 

To the north of the Woodley Park, neighborhood residents and their canine companions can find the Tregaron Nature Preserve which also has miles of interconnecting trails to explore with your pup. There are many different users and wildlife in this greenway as well, so you'll need to keep your dog secure and clean up any messes to be respectful to other park and trail users.
