Glover Park

Glover Park is a neighborhood located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, DC, just north of Georgetown. Today, Glover Park is perhaps best known for its commercial corridor, principally along Wisconsin Avenue, with gourmet grocers, a pharmacy, hardware store, health clubs and spas, shops, bars and well-regarded restaurants. Glover Park is the home of the embassy of Russia and the offices of the Chinese embassy. Its residents are served by the Glover Park Citizen’s Association , which publishes the Glover Park Gazette for residents.

Glover Park’s children are served by Benjamin Stoddert Elementary, rated as a high-performing school by the U.S. Department of Education, and Rose L. Hardy Middle School, both located in Glover Park.


Glover Park is served by significant stretches of parkland and green space that separate it from adjacent neighborhoods. Glover-Archbold Park is an extension of Rock Creek Park, and itself is a 190-acre park with nature trails and an unofficial dog park. Guy Mason Recreation Center, the location of the annual Glover Park Day, offers a softball diamond with league play, a playground for children, a multi-purpose court, picnic areas, multi-purpose rooms and an enclosed dog park. Victory Gardens, on 42nd at Tunlaw and W streets and leased from the National Park Service, offers residents the opportunity to harvest crops from small, individual garden plots.
