Shaw Dog Park is a 15,000 square foot, fenced-in public park where dog owners can bring their dogs and allow them to play and socialize off-leash.
The park provides a safe space to raise healthy, well-tempered dogs in an urban environment, and it provides an opportunity to bring together members of the community.
The park has two fully-fenced enclosures
- Small enclosure for dogs under 25 pounds, physically challenged dogs and senior dogs
- Larger, more active play area for ball tossing and running.
Use of the dog park is free, but governed by the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) rules for use of city dog parks.
