About

Downtown Phoenix Dog Park

The Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood lies in Downtown Phoenix. Bounded by McDowell and Van Buren Streets, 7th Avenue to Central Avenue and encompassing the Roosevelt Historic District, the history of the neighborhood is rich and deep,  and its future exciting and ambitious. As Downtown Phoenix continues to revitalize, The Roosevelt Neighborhood has become a focus for new residential development. Brought to life by parks, a walkable scale, small businesses, restaurants and friendly people, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is the place to be in the burgeoning urban core of Phoenix.
