Buzzard Point is an area located on the southwest section of Washington, D.C. There are several facilities located here including the National Defense University and a marina as well as a large soccer stadium. This region is a former industrial area and was not originally designed for pedestrian travel, although more recent development in the area has begun to provide various destinations in the neighborhood. There are some commercial businesses to the north that can be accessed on foot. 


Local dog walkers will need to contend with a variety of weather conditions and be prepared for inclement weather that is not always cooperative for on foot travel. Cold winters mean precipitation in the form of snow and icy conditions. This neighborhood is somewhat exposed to the elements due to its location on a peninsula and ongoing development, so cold, wet weather in winter can be unpleasant. Summers are humid, so limit you and your pet's activity during hot weather.

Buzzard Point is located on a peninsula at the junction of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers. This region has been an industrial area and some industrial activity remains. Large multi-story office and apartment buildings have been developed more recently and a large soccer stadium was built which is a major landscape feature.  


There is little landscaping and green space in the community and lots of pavement. There are some large homes located on the east side along the Washington Channel of the Potomac River and low rise apartments to the north of the area. The terrain is relatively level and not difficult to traverse, however, due to its industrial nature, sidewalks are not consistently available and it is not always straightforward to get around the neighborhood using separate pedestrian paths. 


The waterways, marina, and a small park at the south tip provides attractive features in the area and pleasant areas for walking.

Buzzard Point Park is located where the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers join and has great views of the waterways. The National Park Service is currently planning further development of this park on the water and new facilities and amenities are expected in the future. The Yards Park Dog Park is located to the east. This small enclosed dog park has benches and provides a place for your pup to play off-leash.

A large greenway is located on the west side of Buzzard Point and across the Potomac River. The East Potomac Park is not easily reached on foot, but can be accessed by pedestrian ways along bridges to the north. This park has lots of pedestrian paths along the water that are great for walks with your dog. Other facilities include a golf course, swimming pool, athletic fields, and tennis courts. The park is popular with fishers, joggers, and cyclists, so keep your dog leashed while strolling the scenic trails.
