More About Michigan Park Real Estate
Home to Providence Hospital and Saint Anselm’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastery, Michigan Park maintains one of the most active civic associations in the District. The community is known for its plethora of open green space, including the Fort Circle Parks as well as recreational facilities such as the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center. Two major traffic corridors — South Dakota and Michigan avenues — create a small commercial center. Many residents do the majority of their shopping in Brentwood or nearby Brookland which also offers galleries, shops, and restaurants.
The Brookland-CUA Station on the Red Line is the closest Metro stop while several bus lines — the 80, E, and R — traverse the community. Michigan Park is bounded by Gallatin Street NE on the north; Taylor Street NE to the south; South Dakota Avenue on the east; and Puerto Rico Avenue to the west.
