  • This is an excellent place for social dogs who want the company of others and to run and play. If you dog is not crazy about others in its species, go somewhere else for fun.  more »
  • Shirlingotn Dob Park is the best in all of the DC metro area. My boxer gets a great workout and loves the natural park complete with squirrels.  more »

  • Always clean and enjoyable for humans as much as pups. Separate small pup fenced area. Paved walk with a majority in shade. Be sure to donate to them online if you enjoy! Volunteers keep this park tidy and stocked up with bags and bowls.
  • Just brought my pup for the first time. I also brought my kids (6-11 yo). Great fun for both! Like others have said, nice walk followed by a rocky descend to the water where the dogs can chase a ball or just take a quick dip. We encounetered many breeds and wonderfully kind, responsible owners. We will certainly return!
