Fun for Fido – Arlington VA Dog Parks

Sammy basking in the sun.

I’m a big believer that Fido is as much a part of the family as anyone else. So when you’re looking for Arlington VA real estate, this could equate to proper flooring for Fido, a fenced-in back yard or (if Fido is elderly and having health issues) a nearby vet.

For the purpose of today’s blog and zooming in to something our community proudly boasts, let’s look at dog parks.

Arlington is full of opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the local scenery. For those of you with furry babies in tow, fear not, for dog parks are a plenty.


The area houses eight total dog friendly areas with six of them being fully fenced. These fenced options feature off-leash areas where pups can run free within boundaries.

The area parks that include off leash areas are Utah, Fort Barnard, Towers, Fort Ethan Allen, James Hunter, Shirlington, and Glencarlyn.

Here is a brief overview of each park and what each offers:
