Peaceful, diverse and family-friendly, Brandywine, MD has much more to offer than simply being a thirty-minute drive from DC. Brandywine got its name from the Battle of Brandywine in the Revolutionary War, and this old railway town is chock full of history. No fewer than eighteen sites in this small town are on the National Register of Historic Places! 

These days, though, Brandywine is mostly known as a sleepy commuter suburb with a tight-knit community and a small-town, neighborly feel. You won’t find a veterinary practice in town, unfortunately, but you’ll find a choice of clinics to take care of your buddy, as well as emergency services in nearby Waldorf.

There’s no designated dog park in Brandywine, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! North Keys Community Park is a lovely spot for a leashed walk, and if you two like hiking, you’re in luck -- the town’s just a stone’s throw away from state parks, state forests, and other furrifically fur-friendly hiking options. And if your four-legged pal longs to run off-leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of pawesome dog parks in the surrounding area!

    #1 Cedarville State Forest

    Cedarville State Forest sits right on the southern edge of Brandywine, so it’d be a huge faux paw not to check it out! This vast state park is a popular spot for camping, and it’s easy to see why -- you could spend days or weeks exploring the wilderness here. You’ll find miles upon miles of trails for you and your pooch to sniff and explore -- and there’s one for every ability, from the fittest furry friends to the less athletic among us. Your pooch will need to be leashed, of course, and remember to bring your own bags and water!

    #2 St. Charles Parkway

    36
    White Plains Dog Park is a real mutts-visit! There’s plenty of room here for your fur-ball to leap about and burn off some excess energy, and there’s a separate area for small dogs, too, so your pooch can play and socialize no matter their size! Not only that, but the park is well-shaded -- your pup can run around to their heart’s content without you worrying about them overheating in the summer sun. Bags are provided, but keep in mind that water is not available in winter -- it’s shut off to prevent the pipes from freezing, so you’ll need to bring your own bottle during the colder months.

    #3 Turkey Hill

    Make no bones about it -- your pooch will love a trip to the dog park at Turkey Hill Park in La Plata! There’s plenty of space in both the small and large dog areas for a spirited game of catch or tug-of-war, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the benches. Bags are provided, but unlike the park at White Plains, there’s no water at all. Keep in mind as well that the surface is mostly grass -- although your pup’s paws might appreciate it, it’s a good idea to bring a towel in case your buddy gets muddy!

    #4 Fort Washington Road

    12
    Cultured canines might get a kick out of a visit to Fort Washington! At one point, Fort Washington was the only fort defending DC, and it was in use from the War of 1812 until World War II. Your pooch is welcome to wander the bastions of the old fort with you, but they might be a little more interested in the trails! There’s a three-mile or so loop that takes in most of the landmarks and boasts fantastic views of the Potomac River besides. Entrance is three dollars from May to October, and free through the rest of the year.

    #5 National Mall - West Potomac Park

    0
    With Brandywine so close to Washington DC, you’d be barking mad not to drive up and take in some history! Luckily, wagging tails are welcome on the National Mall and in the Memorial Gardens, as long as they’re kept on-leash. Your pooch can’t go right up to all the monuments though, so you might need to take some in from a bit of a distance. The big exception to this rule is the FDR memorial, where thousands of pooches a year are photographed next to the statue of the president’s Scottie terrier, Fala.
