Langston is a triangular shaped residential neighborhood that is often considered to be part of the larger Carver-Langston neighborhood. This district is located on the northeast side of Washington, D.C. The area is walkable with local businesses and restaurants. A shopping center, the Hechinger Mall, is located on the western tip of the neighborhood and has many shops and services available. 


Winters in Langston are cold with some snow and dog walkers will need warm coats to be comfortable going out in freezing temperatures and icy conditions. Your dog may even benefit from a warm jacket and paw protection if they are not acclimatized to cold weather. The opposite problem exists in summer months, which can be humid. Avoid walking at the height of the day when temperatures are at their highest. Severe thunderstorms in spring and fall can be frightening to your dog and dangerous with high winds and heavy rainfall. Take shelter when storms are imminent.

Langston is bordered by Maryland Avenue on the north border, Benning Road on the south side, and the Langston Playground on the east side. The Langston playground is a recreational green space with sports fields providing open space to the Langston community. 


The neighborhood has low rise apartments and townhouses that are part of public housing complexes as well as row houses. Properties are well landscaped with trees and lawns. Residential streets have sidewalks and grass berms which provide safe, separate pedestrian walkways for pets and people in Langston. There are some hills with gentle inclines, but no steep sections, and dog walkers and their pups should not have too much trouble getting around the neighborhood. Main thoroughfares, especially around the shopping mall, have more traffic and less landscaping or shade trees. Keep your dog leashed in these regions and cross streets only at designated crossing points.

The Langston Playground is located adjacent to the Langston neighborhood and has large sports fields and facilities as well as a golf course on the west bank of the Anacostia River. There are paved trails in the greenway for walking with your dog. Trails connect to other greenways in the area including the Kingman Island and Anacostia Park to the south.  


The Anacostia Riverwalk Trail features views of the river and connects to several area greenways. These parks have great hiking paths near the water and open areas to enjoy adventures with your canine companion. 


The National Arboretum is located just to the north and this beautiful park has ornamental gardens and diverse wooded areas with walking paths.  Dogs are allowed to visit the arboretum as long as they remain on a leash and you come prepared to clean up after your pet. This is a busy park with lots of people, so make sure your dog is well socialized!
