Throughout the neighborhood, there are plenty of local restaurants and cafes that frequently put out water bowls for all the local pups. Old Town is so pup-friendly, Animal Planet named it one of the most dog-friendly cities in the United States! Additionally, there are plenty of pup-centric businesses, like a Canine Cruise on the Potomac River, pet supply stores, and groomers.
As mentioned before, much of Old Town has cobblestone roads and red brick sidewalks. Because of this, there may be more cracks or uneven areas than other neighborhoods with more modern paving. Make sure you and your pup take it easy and remain aware of the changes in the terrain.
Heading west in the neighborhood, particularly along King Street, you will notice a steady incline, however, nothing in the neighborhood should be too steep where you and your pup may be uncomfortable.
Founders Park, the second largest Old Town greenway, sits on the banks of the Potomac River and is home to several walking trails, a few sports facilities, spaces for picnicking and general recreation, and a playground. Founders Park is also home to a dog exercise area!
Other local greenways include Ford's Landing Park, Windmill Hill Park, Shipyard Park, Armory Tot Lot, Waterfront Park, King Street Park, Market Square, and King Street Gardens Park. Windmill Hill Park even has a fenced-in pup park if Fido needs to socialize or run off some extra energy.
