Glover Park is located on the northwest side of Washington, D.C. This neighborhood is highly walkable with a local commercial strip known for its great restaurants and shops. The area is a popular location for residents to go for a stroll with many family-friendly amenities and activities. A farmers market is held just southeast of the community at the middle school during summer months and there is a playground, ball diamond, and recreation center near the neighborhood. The Naval Observatory on the east side plays the “Sounding of Colors” every morning and evening and these can be heard from Glover Park areas. 


If you enjoy walking your dog around Glover Park, you should have some rain gear for wet spring and fall weather and a warm jacket for chilly winters. Summers are humid and it may be advisable to avoid the heat by walking earlier or later in the day.

Glover Park is bordered by Fulton Street on the north, Wisconsin Avenue on the east, and the Glover-Archbold Park on the southwest sides. The United States Naval Observatory is situated to the east and provides manicured green space nearby while the large parks on the west and south border provide plenty of natural wooded areas. 


This developed neighborhood has a lot of dead-end streets and the lack of thru-traffic makes it more peaceful than many adjacent neighborhoods. Most residences in the area are row houses built in the 1920s and 30s with some low rise apartment buildings that also feature vintage architecture. 


Most of the neighborhood is level and dog walkers do not have any steep climbs to contend with, so even if your pup has some mobility issues, you can get around the area easily. There are separate pedestrian sidewalks lining streets, so you don't have to share the road with vehicles.

The most prominent greenways are the Glover-Archbold Park located on the west side and the Whitehaven Parkway which extends along the south side. This large park has plenty of wooded areas and an extensive trail system. Miles of interconnected trails make ideal locations for a stroll with your pup. During rainy, wet weather, be cautious when using dirt trails. Keep your dog leashed on the trails as other users and local wildlife can create distractions. 


The Glover-Archbold Park is connected to the Newark Street Dog Park. This great off-leash dog park has separate enclosed areas for small and large dogs, tennis balls that collect here from the local tennis courts for playing fetch, waste disposal supplies and facilities, and drinking water supplies for people and pets! 


To the east of Glover Park, the Guy Mason Park has some recreation space and is known as an unofficial dog park, popular with locals and their pets.
