Downtown Phoenix Dog Park

The Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood lies in Downtown Phoenix, bounded by McDowell and Van Buren Streets, 7th Avenue to Central Avenue. The history of the neighborhood is rich and deep and its future promising. With the current revitalization efforts taking place in Downtown, Roosevelt Neighborhood is at the center of new residential development. Brought to life by parks, a walkable scale, small businesses, neighborhood cafes and restaurants, and friendly people, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is becoming the “place to be” in the burgeoning urban core of Phoenix. Learn more about our neighborhood association on this page, and if you have any questions feel free to contact us.
