The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) Langdon dog park project at 2901 20th Street, NE is a partnership between DPR and the Langdon Dog Park Association.
The Langdon Dog Park application was approved by DPR in November 2009 after receiving the formal recommendation of the Dog Park Application Review Committee (DPARC). This 11,500 square-foot off-leash dog park features spaces for both small and large dogs and two dog water fountains. The surface, composed of decomposed granite, is both durable and permeable. Earthern berms that surround the dog park control excesssive water runoff by diverting stormwater away from the storm-drain, allowing it to percolate slowly into the soil instead of flooding the storm sewer.
The Langdon Dog Park, at 11,500 SF, is now the largest dog park in the District of Columbia.
