Battery Kemble Park

Dog Friendly

The high side of this Palisades-area park offers wide-open grassy knolls and shaded picnic tables for fetching and lounging, making it a popular dog-owner hangout. Down the hill lies a spacious parking lot and a wooded loop trail bordering a stream that’s perfect for wading. Explorers can also venture over the little bridges to the Foxhall neighborhood or cross MacArthur Boulevard to connect with trails leading to Georgetown and the C&O Canal.
