Southeast Washington, D.C. is the location of the neighborhood of Randle Highlands. There are schools in the community and a recreation center in the adjacent neighborhood on the north side. There are local businesses in and around Pennsylvania Avenue on the north side of Randle Heights and several restaurants, shops, and services.  

Dog walkers can enjoy taking their pets out regularly for most of the year when temperatures are warm. Even during winters, temperatures are not often frigid and snow is not usually heavy, so a good coat and footwear are usually sufficient for winter walks with your pup. Summer heat with humid conditions can be uncomfortable for long treks with your pup. Walk earlier or later in the day to avoid extreme temperatures and be aware that thunderstorms often accompany the moist heat on the Atlantic coast. These storms can be dangerous to pedestrians with high winds and heavy rain. When thunderstorms are imminent, postpone walks until after they have passed over.

The neighborhood of Randle Heights is bordered by Pennsylvania Avenue on the north side, Minnesota Avenue to the west, a Fort Circle Park to the southeast, and Naylor Road and Texas Avenue on the southern border. Most of the region is a developed residential neighborhood with some multi-story apartment complexes, low rise apartment buildings, single-family detached homes, and semi-detached homes. 


Most of the neighborhood is well landscaped with quiet residential streets lined with sidewalks and grassy berms. There is a commercial area on the north side with less landscaping and more traffic, so keep your dog securely leashed and use caution when walking your dog in these areas. 


The neighborhood has some hilly areas. Slopes are not steep and most pedestrians and pets can get around without too much difficulty. If you want to avoid climbs, you can choose more level areas of the neighborhood. A large greenway is located on the southeast side of Randle Heights which provides natural space and makes a home for local wildlife.

Randle Heights is bordered by a Fort Circle Park on the southeast side. This park is a heavily wooded area that is part of a series of greenways that were formerly civil war earthwork defenses and are now recreational and natural areas. 


The greenway south of Randle Heights connects to Fort Davis Park to the east and Fort Stanton Park to the west. The Fort Circle Hike and Bike trail runs through the greenway and connects to trail systems in the adjacent parks. The trail is seven miles in total length and features gravel and dirt surfaces. 


Alger Park is located just south of the Randle Heights area and is contiguous with the Fort Circle greenway. This is another heavily wooded natural area with trails to explore with your canine companion. This park system is ideal for strolls with your pup as it is shady and has well-defined paths for hikes.
