Our dogs had a great time! Great spot for fetch. There is a decent hole near the gate. Would recommend the owner covers that up somehow. Def coming back again!

An incredibly long yard - go ahead and try to throw a ball far enough to make it out! A great partially shaded setup with easy parking and access.

This is an incredible spot! I was so relieved to find a place where I could play fetch with my dog in D.C. that’s not a public dog park. It was easy to find, there was available parking, and my rescue dog loved getting to stretch his legs and sniff all around. I’ll definitely be coming back!

This place is a godsend! I live in an apartment building and don’t have access to a fenced in area in my neighborhood. This yard is perfect for my soccer & tennis ball loving dog. Thank you so much! We’ll be back :)

The yard is pretty basic, but we just wanted a place that was fully fenced and long enough to throw a ball for our dog, so it was perfect for our needs! We will definitely be booking again. Thank you. :)

FAQ about our Riverdale Park dog parks
