Ledroit Park is a neighborhood of Washington D.C.'s northwest side, not far from the central business district. The Howard University Hospital is located here and there are restaurants, theaters, and shops along Florida Avenue on the south side. 


The neighborhood is a historic district with a self-directed walking tour guided by sixteen signs that take pedestrians on an informative tour of the area. Murals are painted on walls in the area celebrating the community's African-American heritage. 


The walkability of this community can be impacted by inclement weather. The remnants of hurricanes and Atlantic storms can affect the area with high winds and heavy precipitation. Winter blizzards are rare but can occur occasionally and severe thunderstorms in summer can be frequent with warmer weather. Keep an eye on weather forecasts and take shelter when severe weather threatens. Have warm gear for cold winters and avoid hot, humid conditions in summer. Remember that your dog may need protection from the elements as well!

Ledroit Park is a unique historic district located south of W Street, east of Georgia Avenue, west of 2nd Street, and north of Rhode Island Avenue. A large hospital and library are situated in Ledroit Park which creates traffic flow in these areas. There is also a community garden and park that are prominent landscape features and commercial thoroughfares in the region lined with shops and other services. 


Most of the area is residential with historic, beautiful row houses. Older streets are narrow and this is a busy area with a denser than normal population and plenty of activity with all the destinations and historic sites in the region. 


Bricked sidewalks in some locations are in keeping with the region's character and local artwork celebrates the neighborhood history. The terrain is relatively level and there are only some very gentle inclines that are not problematic for walking with your pet.

Ledroit Park is home to The Park at Ledroit, built at the site of a former elementary school ground. The park has a playground, an urban architectural center and community garden, and the Gage Erickson Dog Park is located here. This enclosed off-leash park is a real bonus for local canines with enclosed off-leash spaces for small and large dogs and a hard surface so your pristine pup should not get dirty while playing with other area pooches! Paved walking trails around the park provide great walking paths for you and your pup to take a stroll.

Anna J. Cooper Circle Park is located in the center of an area traffic circle. The outer walkway is bricked with benches and the central garden features are very pretty with large shade trees. If you are going through the district, this is an ideal place for you and your pup to stop for a rest in the shade.
