Brookland is a northeast residential neighborhood of Washington, D.C. There are several businesses and services located along 12 Street which runs from north to south through the district and these commercial establishments are accessible on foot for area residents.  


Dog walkers in the region should have a variety of outerwear for various weather conditions. Summers are hot and humid. Avoid overexertion and dehydration when walking with your pet by choosing cooler times of day to venture out. Winters are cold and snowfall does occur. Sidewalks can be icy and sub-freezing temperatures require warm outerwear for treks with your pup. Severe winter storms are rare, but do occasionally occur, and you and your dog should seek shelter when severe winter weather approaches the region. Summer thunderstorms and even tornadoes occur in warmer months. These storms systems pack high winds, hail, and torrential rains. When extreme weather is imminent, seek shelter.

Brookland is a developed residential neighborhood located to the south of Michigan Avenue, north of Rhode Island Avenue, west of South Dakota Avenue, and east of 9th Avenue. There are train tracks on the west border which form an impediment to on foot travel and should only be crossed at designated pedestrian crossings. 


Residential homes are moderate in size but well kept, closely set with large backyards and well-landscaped properties. Residential streets have sidewalks which provide safe walkways for pedestrians and pets separate from traffic and areas are lined with large shade trees and often grassy berms. 


 Most residential roads are quiet, although a main commercial thoroughfare running through the region has more vehicles and activity and main routes on the border are more heavily trafficked. Some of the terrain in the area are hilly and there are a few steeper areas which can present a challenge to dog walkers and pets

There are sports fields and facilities in a green space across from Perry Street Prep School and on the Burroughs Education Campus in Brookland. The Fort Bunker Hill historical site and grounds is a wooded park with nature trails also located in the neighborhood where you can find a shady retreat for a stroll with your pup.  


A few blocks to the east, residents can reach Barnard Hill Park on foot. This 2-acre greenway is considered part of Rock Creek Park. The park has open and wooded terrain and some elevation changes with picnic sites and a baseball diamond for park goers to use. 


A short driving distance away, there are some larger parks for dog walkers to visit with their pets. Colmar Manor Community Park, the US National Arboretum, and Kenilworth Park all permit dogs on leashes and have plenty of paved paths to explore.
