Dog Walking To Be Banned at Rock Creek Church Cemetery

“Dear PoP,

A “No Dog Walking” sign went up in Rock Creek Cemetery sometime in the past week (I noticed it on Saturday). I fear that folks may have been taking advantage of the cemetery – allowing their dogs to go off leash or not cleaning up after them, but I’m really sad to lose my favorite dog walking locale. I wonder if you knew any more about it, or who I could email at the church to politely request that they rethink their decision.”

Another reader wonders if the ban might be related to the recent theft of bronze sculptures or a school coming to the grounds.

I know it may sound strange to people not familiar with the cemetery but this has long been a spot for people to take their dogs. Anyone know if folks take dogs to Congressional Cemetery?

Rock Creek Church Cemetery is located at Rock Creek Church Rd and Webster St, NW, near the Old Soldiers Home grounds.
