Wag! Walkers know Virginia Square

Virginia Square is a central neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, located just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The downtown business area is less than a 30-minute commute by vehicle or using the metro, which can be accessed in the district. This is a highly walkable neighborhood with many services and amenities. Shops, restaurants, a hotel, and other businesses are located throughout the neighborhood, although they are mostly concentrated on the south side and along busy thoroughfares. The YMCA Arlington, a library, Arlington Arts Center, and George Mason University are also located in the region.


Daily walks in the Virginia Square neighborhood with your pup will be more pleasant if you have the right outdoor gear for varying weather conditions. You will need a warm jacket for cold winters and rain gear for spring and fall to stay dry. Summers are humid and spawn late afternoon thunderstorms. Adjust your outings with your pup to avoid the heat of the day and forecasted storms.

What is the terrain like in Virginia Square?

Virginia Square is bordered by the Curtis Memorial Parkway on the north, North Glebe Road on the west, Wilson Boulevard on the south, and North Kirkwood Road on the east. This district is a developed urban neighborhood with multi-story commercial buildings and office towers on the south side and residential dwellings on the north side. 

The residential area is heavily treed with large trees creating a shady canopy over the quieter residential streets. Residential streets are sometimes narrow one ways, but they do have sidewalks creating separate pedestrian paths for people and pets. The residential section has detached single-family homes with attractive vintage architecture, garden apartments, and some semi-detached dwellings. There are high rise apartment buildings in the more commercial area, which is less heavily landscaped. 

The terrain is reality level with only some gentle inclines and it is not difficult for you and you're pet to walk around the district.

How many greenways are there in Virginia Square?

Virginia Square has several community parks you can visit with your dog while out on a daily stroll. Hayes Park provides three acres with amenities like lighted tennis and basketball courts, a picnic shelter, restrooms, a playground, and a spray park. There are also paved pedestrian paths in the park where you can walk with your leashed pet.

Quincy Park is centrally located and easily accessible for area residents. This park has sports fields, courts, and playgrounds, which dogs are not allowed on as well as picnic sites and shelters. 

Just along the northern border, the Curtis Trail provides a great hiking and bike trail that extends for four miles and connects to other longer trail systems. Two other greenway parks are located just north of Virginia Square along the trail. The Oak Grove Park and Cherry Valley Park also have wooded areas and walking trails, ideal for an adventure with your pup.
