Dog Areas in Riverdale, MD

1 Trail
1 Eatery

Riverdale, Maryland is technically the city that doesn’t exist anymore, but that’s only because the full name is now Riverdale Park. Don’t be surprised if you still hear locals just call it “Riverdale,” though, as the name wasn’t changed until 1998; that’s nearly 80 years after the city was founded. Riverdale Park is located just 25 minutes from Washington, D.C. and only 40 minutes from Baltimore, making it a great sleeper city for workers in either of those larger cities.

When it comes to dog-friendliness, Riverdale isn’t the best in the area. There’s one dog-friendly restaurant, Dumm’s Pizza and Subs. We’ll leave it up to you to figure out what kind of food you can get there. If your canine companion gets sick or injured, no need to worry! There’s a highly-rated veterinarian clinic in Riverdale, so care for your pooch is never too far away. Neither is dog-friendly fun, though; there are plenty of dog parks and more dog-friendly restaurants within 20 miles of Riverdale, so if you don’t mind a quick trip, there’s plenty for you and Fido to do! Enjoy your time here, whether you call it Riverdale or Riverdale Park!
