Welcome to Woodley Park
In 1990, part of Woodley Park was included on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood was originally developed in the 1870s a suburb north of Dupont Circle. Woodley Park is home to rowhouses, brick duplexes, Tudors, and bungalows. Two of the neighborhood’s most admired features are its proximity to Rock Creek Park and its superb Art Deco style bridge, designed by celebrated architect Paul Cret. It is also home to a number of schools, including Oyster-Adams Bilingual School, Maret School, and the John Eaton Elementary School. The neighborhood’s most popular attraction is without doubt the National Zoo, home to one of Washington’s most well-known celebrities. The neighborhood is Metro accessible and near commercial establishments on Connecticut Avenue.
