Woodley Park

Woodley Park is a neighborhood in NW DC bounded by Calvert Street on the southern end, Rock Creek Park to the east, Cleveland Avenue on the west, and the Washington International School on the northern side. Woodley Park is known mostly as the home of the National Zoo and the strip of restaurants on Connecticut Avenue just north of Calvert Street. But when you head into the side streets, you’ll find a quiet residential neighborhood characterized by stunning Victorian and Federal rowhouses, and lovely Beaux Art and Tudor detached houses. From there it’s easy to walk over to Adams Morgan or into Rock Creek Park, making the location ideal for those wanting a peaceful lifestyle while still having the city at their fingertips. Many of DC’s loveliest condos and coops are along Connecticut Avenue also, which attract younger professionals who want to be able to walk to metro.


Woodley Park is served by the Woodley Park metro on the red line.
