Summer Fun With Your Pup

May 8, 2018

Our pet-friendly apartments in Alexandria are right next door to some of the city’s best parks – perfect for summer fun with your four-legged friend!


When you adopt a pet, it quickly becomes an integral part of your family. Pamper your furry friend the way they deserve with the local and in-house amenities at these pet-friendly apartments in Alexandria. ROSS’ Alexandria apartments provide hassle-free living and crucial creature comforts for man’s best friend. And that’s not all. The Heritage at Old Town apartments are also conveniently located close to the city’s largest green spaces, so you and your pet have plenty of room to roam. Read on for the most pet-friendly activities in Alexandria, VA.


In your own backyard

The best and most convenient place to take your dog is the Heritage at Old Town fenced dog park. Having a run so close by makes it easy for your pet to get outdoor exercise every single day. Plus, it’s perfect for Fido’s late night bathroom breaks.




A relaxing stroll

Founders Park is one of the most scenic natural spaces in the city and it’s just a six-minute drive from Heritage at Old Town.

Nearly five acres of green mean there’s plenty to explore (and sniff!). Pack a picnic and play an afternoon game of fetch or go for a calm evening walk by the waterside.


Burn off some energy

Montgomery Park is the best spot for particularly active pups. A two-acre dog run provides enough space for even huskies and collies to tire themselves out. Bonus: this is a lesser known but highly recommended dog park, meaning it’s rarely too crowded. And, it’s less than 15 minutes from The Heritage.



Social time!

If the quiet of Montgomery Park is making your pet feel a little lonely, bring them to Yappy Hour! This weekly event is hosted by Jackson 20, and it runs through September 25. Bring your pet in on any Tuesday between 4-8 p.m. to meet plenty of other furry friends and get a bite to eat. You can walk straight from your apartment to the restaurant; it’s just six blocks.


With so many options for you and Fido, it’s hard to choose the best one! Challenge yourself to explore all the local spots this summer and pick your favorite. Visit our pet-friendly apartments in Alexandria today to learn more about the perks we have for man’s best friend.
