The Cribline’s Dog Blog: A New Dog Park On Capitol Hill


During one of my Sunday rounds in search of The Cribline’s House Pick of the Week, I met a realtor in Foggy Bottom who happened to live on Capitol Hill… my neighborhood.

We began to talk about all of the positive changes in the neighborhood including a new dog park called Kingsman. The DC Department of Parks and Recreation Kingsman Field dog park project at 14th Street and Tennessee Avenue, NE (between 13th and 14th Street) is a partnership between DPR and Hill Hounds.

It is fully fenced and allows dogs to run around who would otherwise be confined to walking on a leash. It also allows them to openly play with other dogs in a secure fenced area without the worry that they might run away, run into the street, or get lost. And, it’s a good outlet for dogs to release energy, and according to the realtor, her dog is much happier and calmer at home.

The 11,000 square-foot dog park and renovated basketball court opened for public use in the Spring of 2011.

This story inspired me to start a dog blog that incorporates resources for dog lovers who also care about real estate. Please send any comments or tips that might be of interest, and stay tuned in for more doggie updates.

    Sounds like a very nice dog park and a great place to live. Love hearing about new fun places for pooches.
