If you are looking for the best places for your pooch to explore, search no further. At our Clarendon apartments, we have some suggestions that are great for you and your dog to get outside. Here are some of the best dog parks in Arlington, Virginia. 

James Hunter Dog Park 

Near our apartments in Arlington, VA, James Hunter Dog Park is a friendly meeting spot for all dogs. This park, also known as a Community Canine area, has a water feature for dogs to enjoy. You must keep your dog on a leash, pick up after them, and abide by all urban park rules, including social distancing.

Glencarlyn Dog Park

Glencarlyn Dog Park is a great place in Arlington County for dogs to be off a leash and swim. There are also picnic shelters, playgrounds, and nature trails for human companions. As long as you follow the county dog park rules, a trip to Glencarlyn is a fun adventure for you and your dog.

Shirlington Dog Park 

Located near Courthouse metro, Shirlington Dog Park is an oasis with an inviting stream. Dogs, separated by size, can roam freely in a large, nicely maintained area. There is a lovely walking path, and shade to rest in. Your dogs will love coming to socialize. 

Benjamin Banneker Park

A larger park, Benjamin Banneker also has a secluded sanctuary for dogs to run around. There is a small dog area, so all dogs can stay safe in their separate areas. Dogs in the neighborhood can play together here, and pet owners can lounge in the sun or on a hill in the shade.
