Downtown Phoenix Dog Park

The Roosevelt Neighborhood in Downtown Phoenix encompasses the Roosevelt Historic District and adjacent areas. Bounded by McDowell and Van Buren Streets, 7th Avenue to Central Avenue, the history of the neighborhood is rich and deep,  and its future exciting and ambitious. As Downtown Phoenix continues to revitalize, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is alive with new multi-family residential construction. Brought to life by parks, a walkable scale, small businesses, restaurants and friendly people, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is the place to be in Phoenix’s burgeoning urban core.
