Fort Ward Park: convenient dog walk destination

If you’re tired of taking the same path for your daily dog walks, Alexandria’s Fort Ward Park is a great place to add some variety to your venues, and it’s inside the Beltway!

The park is located on Braddock Road just east of 395, and offers a paved .6-mile loop that is popular with two- and four-legged walkers and runners.

You can also exercise your brain and learn about Alexandria’s post-Civil War African American community with new historical signage throughout the park. With a playground and lots of green space and picnic tables, Fort Ward is a nice place for family play time or a take away meal, too.

Fort Ward Park is open 9 am to dusk seven days a week at 4301 West Braddock Road,
Alexandria, Virginia 22304.
