Let your pooch stretch their legs at the Dominion View Park on Stablehouse Drive! This minimally furnished, roadside park is equipped with a bench, small playground, and basketball court. While there is a spacious grassy lawn for Fido to sniff and stroll on, Dominion View also provides access to the Washington and Old Dominion Trail, which is ideal if you're looking for a more challenging activity. Also known as W&OD for short, this popular, multi-use trail stretches 45 miles from Shirlington to Purcellville, traveling through urban areas and the Virginia countryside. Doggos are welcome on the W&OD but must be kept on-leash and under control at all times.

Tucked in an older neighborhood, the Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park features three kids' playgrounds, making it a popular destination among local families. While it is best-known for its play areas, this 5-acre park also contains a walking path, picnic pavilion, creek, and athletic courts. Benches are scattered around the site as well, giving visitors various spots to sit and relax. Note that shade at the Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park is limited, so early morning and late afternoon are probably the best times to stop by. Bring water to keep your pooch hydrated, as there are no drinking fountains on-site.

This neighborhood contains a few pet-friendly restaurants that let Fido tag along while you grab a bite to eat. One of these is Santini's New York Style Deli, a casual Italian eatery that serves pizza, subs, salads, and more. Here, you can share an outdoor table with your furry pal on their partially gated sidewalk cafe. If you feel like having Lebanese cuisine instead, stop by the Sahara Restaurant and Hookah Lounge for some falafel and kababs. Sahara offers a spacious alfresco dining area where you can enjoy your meal with your pup by your side. Santini's and Sahara are both located in the Clock Tower Shopping Center.
