Woodley Park is a neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC, that combines a vibrant commercial corridor with a quiet residential area. Once the site of summer homes for the wealthy in the 1800s, Woodley Park was where Presidents Martin Van Buren and Grover Cleveland spent their Augusts.
Today properties in Woodley Park range from row houses and brick duplexes to Cape Cods, Tudors and split level homes, many with spacious yards and room for gardens. Connecticut Avenue and neighboring side streets are lined with venerable apartments and co-ops, many designed in the Beaux Arts and Art Deco styles. Notable attractions in the neighborhood include the National Zoo as well as the Omni Shoreham, and Marriott Wardman Park, two of the District’s largest hotels. Residents and visitors alike are also drawn to Woodley Park’s mix of international restaurants and bistros on Connecticut Avenue, including the popular brunch spot, Open City.
Woodley Park is served by the Woodley Park-Adams Morgan Metro Station and is within walking distance of Adams Morgan, Cleveland Park, and Rock Creek Park. Boundaries extend from Woodley Road and Klingle to the north to the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park to the east from 34th Street to the west and Calvert Street to the south and Cleveland Avenue to the southwest.
