Lanier Heights is a neighborhood located in northwest Washington, D.C. that is part of the larger Adams-Morgan community. There are local services including grocery stores and restaurants along Columbia Road on the neighborhood's south side and within easy walking distance. Larger entertainment districts with more varied restaurants and shops are located in adjacent districts and are also reachable on foot, making the area highly walkable. 


Dog walkers in Washington should be prepared for a variety of weather conditions from hot, humid summer conditions to cold, snowy winter weather. A warm coat and boots are necessary for sub-freezing temperatures and icy conditions in winter months. If your dog is short haired or not acclimatize to cold weather, your pup might want a jacket too! Avoid walking at the height of the day during warmer months when heat-related illnesses can be a factor and when people and pets can become dehydrated.

Lanier Heights is a residential neighborhood that is part of a larger community. Lanier Heights is 50 acres in size and is bordered by 16th Street on the east, Adams Mill Road on the west, Columbia Road on the south, and Harvard Street on the north side. This residential neighborhood was developed in the early 1900s and homes in the area reflect this history with Classic Revival, Art Deco, and other unique architectural styles.  Row houses and multi-story apartment buildings are common in the region and are set on heavily landscaped properties. Large shade trees create a shade canopy over residential roads. 


The terrain has some gentle inclines but no steep climbs to contend with for you and your dog. There are plenty of sidewalks lining streets, so you and your pup don't have to share the road with local traffic. The Smithsonian National Zoo is located on the west side and creates a large green space on that border.

Rock Creek Park is located to the north of Lanier Heights and provides 1,754 acres of natural greenway and miles of hiking trails to adventure with your canine companion. The terrain on natural dirt surfaced trails in this park can be treacherous in inclement weather, so use caution. There are many other trails in the park as well that may be a better option after heavy rainfalls. These trails are frequented by cyclists and other joggers, so be aware of other fast moving users that may frighten or startle your pup. Your dog should remain on a leash in the park and you should bring supplies to clean up after your pet.  

The Rock Creek trails extend to the west side of Lanier Heights next to the zoo.

Walter Pierce Park is located centrally in Lanier Heights. This greenway has a community garden, sports fields and facilities, a playground, and an enclosed off-leash dog park.
