Jones Point Park

Leashed dogs are welcome at Jones Point Park! Located on the Potomac River, the Park is a critical piece of Alexandria's history, and it features the last remaining riverine lighthouse in Virginia. Pets must be cleaned up after and on a leash no longer than six feet during their visit. Restrooms, water fountains, and a dog drinking bowl can be found underneath the Park's bridge, and trash bins are scattered throughout the park. Jones Point Park is open year-round from 6am to 10pm.

    We Love This Spot

    Such a cool gem. Historic lighthouse, view of National Harbor, large fields, playground equipment, basketball courts, pathways and trails. Ample and easy parking. Very little use before sunrise on weekdays (you’ll have the place to yourself). Some of the pathways are not lit and used by bikers so recommend a light, flasher, or reflective strip at minimum before and after dark. Lots of wildlife - snakes, rabbits, foxes, etc. Slip area for kayaks and row boats. Mind the water quality if you choose to let Fido swim. Very muddy pathways after rain. This is technically a leashes park but we typically are the only ones there - just be vigilant about wildlife and carcasses.

    Nice walk along the river

    This is scenic riverfront walk along the river. It leads to a lighthouse. There is parking lot and bathroom available. I saw lots of dogs off leash.
