The Timberbranch Drive Off-Leash Dog Area is located at the median of East Timberbranch Parkway and Timberbranch Drive, in Alexandria, Virginia. It is actually right between Braddock Road and Oakley Place and it is an unfenced area of 705 square feet, marked with bollards and additional rules and regulation signs.
The park area features less than half a mile walkable parkway roads. A small dog exercise area is located on East Timber Branch Parkway, with a designated off-leash sector marked by bollards, where owners can exercise their dogs without disrupting other uses of the parks. Because it is an unfenced area, the park can be visited at all times of day and night, free of charge.
The park is a great place to enjoy trail activities such as walking, running or jogging, bicycling, and of course, dog walking. Although dogs are not permitted in certain areas, including athletic fields or playgrounds, they are allowed to exercise off-leash in their designated area. No restrooms are yet available to the general public.
All animals are otherwise allowed to visit the rest of the park, but they must be on a leash during the entire time. Even though the open space size does not exceed that of a basketball court, the park has a natural water system area, where owners can also enjoy birdwatching or strolling. On the downside, there is little to no shade in the open space, but you will find trash cans and plenty of grass surface for your furry companion to enjoy and investigate.
Be reminded that you should keep your dog in view at all times and immediately pick up and dispose of their waste. The Timberbranch Drive Off-Leash Dog Area is a great place to exercise your dog freely, while taking advantage of various sport facilities available in the area.
