Dog owners and their canine companions can experience inclement weather in the Washington, D.C. region when taking daily walks, regardless of the season. Thunderstorms are common in the spring and summer and can create dangerous conditions for pedestrians and pets with high winds and heavy rainfall. Atlantic storm systems can affect the area which you will want to avoid. Winter weather is cold with some snow and, although severe blizzards are rare, they do occasionally occur and create frigid conditions that are not amenable to walking. Dress for cold weather in the winter and take precautions in summer against extreme heat and humidity.

Eastland Gardens is bordered by Interstate 295 on its eastern border, Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens on the west and south, and Nash Street on the northern border. Eastland Gardens is a middle-class neighborhood with about 300 single-family dwellings on generous properties with well-sized backyards and homes set back from streets. Private properties are well landscaped with trees and lawns. There are also trees on grassy berms and along residential streets with separate sidewalks which create walkways for on foot travel in the area. 


The terrain is fairly level with only some gentle inclines. People and pets of all mobility levels should be able to navigate the neighborhood without having to contend with any steep sections that would impede travel. The aquatic gardens on the west side of the neighborhood create a significant landscape feature with natural and cultivated parkland and recreational property. The freeway to the east is not a pedestrian-friendly area and should be avoided.

The Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens provide a unique greenway on the west side of Eastland Gardens. This park provides habitat for, not only traditional terrestrial plants and trees, but also for aquatic water lilies, lotuses, and other wetland flora in cultivated ponds not far from the Anacostia River. The park is home to the only tidal marsh in the Washington, D.C. area and to several species of mammals and countless bird species. Dogs are permitted on the paths in the park, but must remain on a leash and should stay off sensitive wetland ecosystems because wetlands and waterways can be treacherous with variable footing. 


The Anacostia Riverwalk trail extends through the park, along the river, and provides a long, beautiful hiking trail for excursions with your dog. A recreational section of the park is adjacent to the neighborhood and has sports facilities and fields as well as paved paths.
