Woodridge is a large neighborhood located in eastern Washington, D.C. It is roughly five miles northeast of the downtown area and the National Mall. Residentially, Woodridge is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes. Commercially, there are quite a few churches throughout the neighborhood as well as a few fast food chains, gas stations and convenience stores, and a few schools. Most of the local businesses are along Rhode Island Avenue or Bladensburg Road. 


While Woodridge is relatively far away from the tourist attractions of Washington, D.C., they are still largely accessible due to D.C.'s well-functioning public transportation system. All residents and visitors can explore the many well-known attractions and landmarks like the National Mall or Smithsonian museums. 

D.C. weather varies by season. Summer months tend to be extremely humid and hot, so be sure to pack plenty of water when out walking. The winter months, however, bring chilly temperatures and mild snowfall, although the city does get hit by blizzards every few years.

The northern half of Woodridge should be relatively walkable, as it is the more residential area with well-maintained sidewalks, lower speed limits, and mature trees to provide shade during summer days. The southern half of Woodridge is a bit more industrial and you won't find quite as many sidewalks. The busier roads are also located in the southern part of the neighborhood. 


Woodridge also has quite a few hills. There seems to be a large hill centrally located, while elevation steadily decreases as you near the borders of the neighborhood. If you or your pup have any mobility issues, stick to the borders of the neighborhood and you should not experience too many steep hills. 

The boundaries of Woodridge include Shepherd Street to the north, Eastern Avenue to the eastm Bladensburg Road to the south, and South Dakota Avenue to the west. Eastern Avenue is also the Maryland-Washington, D.C. border.

Thankfully, there is one decently-sized greenway located in the Woodridge neighborhood. Barnard Hill Park, located in the upper northeast corner of the neighborhood, is operated by the U.S. National Park Service. It is home to open fields for general recreation, a small forest, and a maintained walking trail for you and your pup to use! 


Beyond Barnard Hill Park, other nearby greenways include Langdon Park Recreation Center and its respective greenways, Fort Lincoln Park, Dakota Playground, Colmar Manor Community Park, Mount Rainier Nature-Recreation Center, Neighborhood Park, and Avondale Neighborhood Park.

Woodridge residents also have access to several nearby dog parks. The closest, Langdon Dog Park, is located in the greenways of the Langdon Park Recreation Center. This exercise area for pups is open from dawn to dusk and is a fenced-in park with trash receptacles, a small water fountain, and a few tables and benches. Other nearby dog parks include Heurich Dog Park to the northeast with Gage Eckington Dog Park and the Columbia Heights Dog Park to the west.
