Woodland-Normanstone is a small neighborhood that is sometimes considered part of the larger Woodley Park and Massachusetts Heights communities. This community is a residential neighborhood with no commercial services, however, the adjacent neighborhood to the southwest has a shopping area with restaurants, stores, and services that residents can reach on foot.  


Weather conditions in the region vary throughout the year. Dog walkers and their pups will want to have warm coats and footwear for sub-freezing temperatures during winter months. Light snow is the norm, but occasionally, heavier snow with storms systems occur. When severe winter weather is occurring, you should avoid long outdoor treks in favor of indoor exercise. Summer months see humid conditions that can result in heat-related problems. You and your dog should stay well hydrated and avoid overexertion. Thunderstorms are frequent in warmer months and can create dangerous conditions for exposed people and pets. Take shelter when severe storms are present.

Woodland-Terrace is a quiet, peaceful residential neighborhood with 160 homes, 24 of which are embassy residences. The neighborhood is bordered by Garfield Street to the north, the US Naval Observatory on the west, Rock Creek Park on the east, and Whitehaven Street on the south. 


When the neighborhood was developed, streets were built to curve around the hilly terrain and natural trees were preserved, making this a beautiful park-like setting for homes. This is a high end, exclusive area with beautiful single-family detached homes on lushly landscaped properties. The region features a variety of architecture. 


Hills in the neighborhood can be steep and you will need to be prepared to trek up some inclines to get around the district. Most residential streets have sidewalks creating separate pedestrian paths for dog walkers and their furry friends and roads are lined with large shade trees which keep the area cool in summer months and provide shelter in winter.

The Woodland-Normanstone Terrace Park runs through the neighborhood. This swath of natural wooded area connects to Rock Creek Park on the east side. Dog walkers can explore the local park, a branch of the larger Rock Creek Park system, or venture to the larger park with just under 2,000 acres of natural trees along the Rock Creek and ravine. Rock Creek has an extensive trail system that is easily accessible from the Woodland-Normanstone Terrace area. Even the most energetic pup will find plenty of trails to explore in this vast park. 


The park is home to a variety of wildlife which can also startle or distract your dog, so keep your dog under control. You don't want to lose your pup in this large wilderness area! 


Many amenities and historical sites are present to visit and there is a plethora of beautiful landscape to enjoy. Use caution around the creek, especially during and after wet weather.
