Getting Around DuPont Park

Around DuPont Park

DuPont Park is among one of the quieter D.C neighborhoods. With many families having lived in the area for many years, the community's warm camaraderie is very welcoming to newcomers. Along tree-lined Minnesota Avenue, large foursquare houses and grand single-family homes sit neatly within wooded lots. Housing options in the upper side are relatively affordable and will put you very close to the many Metro bus stops located on Minnesota Avenue.

Most of the shopping and restaurants can be found around the Penn Branch Shopping Center. Although options are limited in this small neighborhood, access to the city's finest eats is very convenient. Take a Metro bus or make your way to the closest Metro station (Naylor Road) and check out what the rest of the downtown area offers.

Young professionals have started moving to this area for the attractive costs of living and easier, cheaper commutes. However, you should still expect to see families and children enjoying their yards and the surrounding parks. From the single-family homes along Minnesota Avenue, to the quieter side streets boasting affordable duplexes, bungalows and split-levels, DuPont Park is a family-friendly neighborhood with an appealing location and peaceful energy.

DuPont Park doesn't get very crowded, as many of its residents move here for the quiet, suburban lifestyle. In the summer, see what free concerts are on the calendar at Fort DuPont Park and enjoy a night outdoors with family and friends.

Take a drive to Fort DuPont Park and spend the day in the sun or visit the historic fort that dates back to the Civil War. Pack a picnic or take your sneakers to one of the athletic courts. If running is your thing, Sunday is always a good day for run the 10-mile trail that winds through the park. Maybe enjoy some waterfront views at Anacostia Park, one of D.C.'s largest recreational areas, and walk along the Anacostia River.
