The Woodley Park neighborhood and Historic District are in the Northwest quadrant of Washington DC. The neighborhood is approximately outlined north by Woodley Rd. NW and Klingle Rd. NW, east by the Rock Creek Park and the National Zoo, south by Calvert St. NW and Garfield St. NW, southwest by Cleveland Ave. NW, and West by 34th St. NW. Within the neighborhood lies Old Woodley Park Historic District, which is generally outlined north and east along Cathedral Ave. NW, south by a short section of Calvert St. NW and Woodley Rd. NW, and west by 24th St. NW and 29th St. NW. The area is well serviced by the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Metro station and the Circulator shuttle bus.
This historic area, characterized by beautifully crafted row-houses and detached homes, boasting a wide range of architecture with lush trees shading suburban-like streets, has retained much of its original character developed from the early 20th century. The Old Woodley Park Historic District achieved placement on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. This namesake neighborhood derives its name from the Federal-style Woodley House, which was built by Philip Barton Key in 1801. While there have been more commercial and residential apartment developments along on the comparatively bustling Connecticut Ave, the stately feel hasn’t changed much.
With the combination of sought-after local schools, quiet residential streets, ample green space for outdoor activities, and a plethora of diverse eating establishments, many would love to live here. With a seamless blend or urban and suburban attributes, Woodley Park really has the best of both worlds.
