A Slice of Picturesque Suburbia

Glover Park owes its name to 19th century philanthropist Charles Carroll Glover, a generous banker who was influential in the construction of the Rock Creek Park system, the National Zoo, and many of the famous embassies in the area. And though there is debate over pronunciation of the name (rhyming with cover or clover?), there’s a wide consensus that Glover Park – with it’s community gardens, charming row homes, and close-knit community feel – is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in DC.

Wisconsin avenue offers Glover Park residents a collection of shops, services, and increasingly popular restaurants along its modest commercial zone. Off the main drag, row homes as well as some larger apartment complexes are mixed with baseball fields, parks and community gardens. Circulator bus service as well as easy access to Wisconsin and New Mexico avenues offer effortless travel in and out of Glover Park. The area is also home to the United States Naval Observatory, whose horns serenade the neighborhood each night with the military tune “Colors,” as well as the massive Russian embassy. District residents looking for quiet, charm, and convenience in northwestern Washington need look no further than Glover Park.
