Wag! Walkers know Del Ray (Potomac West)

Del Ray is a trendy neighborhood located in Alexandria, Virginia. Sometimes referred to as Potomac West, Del Ray is located in the greater-Washington, D.C. area and is home to plenty of D.C. commuters. Alexandria, as a city, is known for its Old Town district, its fresh seafood, and its local boutiques, however, you can also find several theaters, antique shops, and historic landmarks in Alexandria. Residents can also visit Washington, D.C. and its many attractions as the nation's capitol is just over the Potomac River.

Del Ray, as a neighborhood, is largely residential with single-family homes and duplexes. There are also a few apartment complexes throughout the neighborhood. However, Mount Vernon Avenue, which goes down the center of the neighborhood, is home to several local businesses like coffee shops, restaurants, and a well-attended farmers market. Del Ray is also home to a public library branch, several churches, and a few convenience stores.

What is the terrain like in Del Ray (Potomac West)?

As a suburb to a rather large city, Del Ray is largely composed of artificial terrain. Even the parks are frequently manicured, rather than having naturally growing plants. The benefits of this more urban environment, however, include well-maintained sidewalks throughout the neighborhood. Many of these sidewalks are even lined with mid-sized trees, particularly in the residential parts of Del Ray. 

Additionally, Del Ray and its surrounding neighborhoods are all relatively flat. You and your pup should be able to plan a leisurely walk, rather than having to worry about steep inclines or drops. 

The boundaries of Del Ray include East Glebe Road to the north, Richmond Highway to the east, East Monroe Avenue to the south, and Russell Road to the northwest. Mount Vernon Road is home to most of the commercial spaces in this neighborhood and may have a bit more traffic than the surrounding residential areas. Many of these local businesses even place out water bowls for the local neighborhood pups!

For a neighborhood of this size, there are six public greenways! The largest of the public parks in this area, Eugene Simpson Stadium Park, is largely space used for athletic facilities including baseball fields, basketball courts, and tennis courts. However, there is also a small dog park located in this greenway.

While this park does have a playground, it's also a prominent section of the Mt. Jefferson Park Trail, a half-mile trail that is constantly being updated and expanded. Goat Hill Park, another prominent greenway in Del Ray, is home to a playground, a large field for general recreation, and a wooded area.
