The Glover Park neighborhood is located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington DC. It’s outlined north by Fulton St. NW, east by Wisconsin Ave. NW, south by Whitehaven Parkway, and west by Glover-Archbold Park. It’s situated just west of the US Naval Observatory and about a half mile north of Georgetown.
The neighborhood is named after Charles Carroll Glover, a former bank president and philanthropist, whose visionary ideas shaped the look and feel of Washington. Glover owned most of the land that makes up Glover Park today. He had major developmental influence in creating Rock Creek Park and its Parkway, the National Zoo, the National Cathedral, and the Washington Monument. His love of nature focused his desire to acquire over 3,200 acres of parkland, which he sold to the US government. He donated an additional 77 acres to the National Capital Parks Commission in 1924, which now makes up the majority of Glover-Archbold Park.
Glover Park is a real close-knit community. There is ample green space to the south and west, which limits traffic in and out, lending a small town feel to this somewhat secluded area. In addition, there are no servicing Metro stations but several bus lines are available. This mostly residential neighborhood has large deciduous bird-filled trees lining its quiet streets. Most commercial development is isolated to the east along the bustling Wisconsin Ave. A Whole Foods grocery and its casual restaurants are feeding a thriving foodie culture. Kitchen 2404, Town Hall, BreadSoda and Rocklands Barbeque are just a few of its quality dining and entertainment options.
The available housing in Glover Park primarily consists of 1920s and 1930s Tudor and Federal style row-homes and 1950s and 1960s apartment complexes. Condos and co-ops can also be found as converted apartment buildings done in the 1970s. Despite a lack of new construction, be aware of markedly high housing prices.
