Living in Woodley Park and Cleveland Park
Located in northwest D.C., leafy Woodley Park and Cleveland Park are just across Rock Creek from Adams Morgan and easily accessible via public transit, with both neighborhoods on the Red Line of the Washington Metro.
While primarily residential, they also have thriving commercial areas, and residents don’t have to travel far to shop, dine, or catch a show.
Cleveland Park has two main commercial districts, one of which is on Connecticut Avenue NW, with the other one centered on Wisconsin Avenue. Among this community’s most noteworthy establishments are the Park and Shop, one of North America’s earliest strip malls, and the Art Deco Uptown Theater. This single-screen movie theater is widely regarded as one of the best in the area, with a screen measuring a whopping 40 x 70 feet and enough seating for 850 patrons.
Woodley Park is ideally situated to take advantage of all the fabulous outdoor areas that Washington D.C. has to offer. One of the most popular spots to visit in Woodley Park is the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. This zoo is best known for its community of giant pandas, two of which were born and raised here. It is also home to around 1800 other animals of all shapes and sizes.
Adjacent to the zoo is Rock Creek Park. Named for the creek that runs through it, it has been in existence since 1890 and has long been a popular spot for DC residents to go biking, running, horseback riding, and picnicking. Also located here are several historic structures, memorials, statues, and monuments.
In addition to its dozens of great shops and restaurants, this community boasts two historic hotels – the Washington Marriott Wardman Park and the Omni Shoreham. The Wardman Park is currently being redeveloped into luxury condominiums. Other popular attractions in this area include Woodley Park’s two impressive bridges and the Marilyn Monroe mural. The Duke Ellington Bridge connects Woodley Park with the adjacent community of Adams Morgan. This bridge lies a short distance to the north of the William Howard Taft Bridge.
The Taft Bridge, also known as the Connecticut Avenue Bridge, spans the bed of Rock Creek as well as the Potomac Parkway, connecting Woodley Park to Kalorama. Built in the Classical Revival style, it is known for its four guardian lions and is the largest structure in the world that is made out of unreinforced concrete.
