Crestwood is located on the northwest side of Washington, D.C. This is an upscale residential neighborhood with no local restaurants or shops within easy walking distance. However, an amphitheatre, the Pierce Mill, a tennis center, and other sites in Rock Creek Park are nearby and walkable.   


The weather in Washington, D.C. may require dog walkers to adjust their daily stroll with their pup to avoid inclement weather. Summer thunderstorms are common, winter blizzards are rare, but can occur, and Atlantic storm systems and hurricanes occurring in the fall occasionally hamper plans for dog walkers.  Most winters are cold with light snow, but you can weather the elements if you have a good warm coat and appropriate footwear. Humid summer conditions may require you to pack extra water for you and your pet on long walks and schedule your outings for cooler times of the day.

Crestwood is a developed residential neighborhood with heavy landscaping, majestic trees on private properties and along residential streets, and beautiful homes. The neighborhood has a triangular shape and is bordered by 16th Street on the east side, Piney Branch Park on the south side, and Rock Creek Park on the northwest side. 


Most homes in the area are single-family dwellings, set back from streets with generously sized properties. Most of the eastern sections of the neighborhood are relatively flat and have separate sidewalks for pedestrians and pets to use. Some areas to the west against Rock Creek Park have more inclines and do not always have separate sidewalks for pedestrians which mean you and your pup will need to share the road with local traffic. 


Large parks on the south and west sides of Crestwood create a natural setting. This neighborhood is quiet and tranquil with lots of greenery and shade to enjoy on summer days.

Crestwood is bordered on two sides by large natural greenways and there are two enclosed dog parks within walking distance to the east. The Upshur Dog Park is located a few blocks to the east and the Columbia Heights Dog Park is located several blocks to the southeast. Upshur is a large off-leash park, however, it has only one enclosed area with a gravel surface for drainage. The Columbia Heights Dog Park also only has one enclosed off-leash area. 


The Piney Branch Park is located on the south border of Crestwood and has its own set of trails through beautiful wooded areas with a variety of trees. Rock Creek Park has 1,754 acres of natural wooded areas along Rock Creek with an extensive trail system. Dogs must remain on a leash in these two parks and be prepared to share trails with other users like cyclists.
