Moving to Glover Park
Glover Park is a charming neighborhood located in northwest Washington, DC. Glover Park is bordered by Rock Creek Park to the west, Fulton Street to the north, Woodley Park to the east, and Whitehaven Park to the south. One of the best places to live in Washington, DC, Glover Park was named after Charles Carroll Glover, who was an early advocate for the urban beautification of Washington, DC and was instrumental in the creation of the National Cathedral, Potomac Park, the National Zoo, and Rock Creek Park. Glover Park is situated half a mile north of Georgetown and west of the United States National Observatory, with Wisconsin Avenue running through it. This part of Wisconsin Avenue is peppered with delightful restaurants, shops, coffee houses, bars, grocery stores, and more. Beyond the classic staples like Sweetgreen and Chipotle, it also features neighborhood favorites like Surfside Tacos, Breadsoda, and Arcuri. Some notable facets of this stretch of Wisconsin Avenue are the impressive Russian Embassy, and the sounding colors of the Master Clock of the Naval Observatory every morning and evening.
Another great feature of this special neighborhood is its annual Glover Park Day, which is a festival held on the first Saturday in June that celebrates Glover Park. Festivities include local food vendors, live music, community service groups, and stalls selling the wares of local crafters and artists. This wonderful event is put on by the Glover Park Citizens’ Association, which is open to all Glover Park citizens and holds meetings on the first Tuesday of most months. Residents of Glover Park send their children to Benjamin Stoddert Elementary School, Hardy Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School.
