Glover Park is a popular neighborhood in Washington, D.C. just north of Georgetown, west of Wisconsin Avenue, and cradled by the serene forested parklands of Glover-Archbold Park and Whitehaven Park.
When the 2010 Census data was released, the tracts that encompass Glover Park, a largely residential neighborhood to the north of Georgetown and Burleith, showed a 25 percent increase in the number of kids and teenagers living in the area in 2010 versus 2000.
This youth population surge should not be all that surprising. The area has a number of the sought-after characteristics that young parents look for in upper Northwest neighborhoods, like a close-knit community atmosphere and quiet streets lined with quaint row houses, as well as a commercial zone with a small but growing foodie scene. However, in addition to being an area for young families, Glover Park may be the preppiest neighborhood in DC next to Georgetown.
Glover Park is bounded by Glover Archbold Park to the south and west, Fulton Street to the north, and Wisconsin Avenue to the east. With no dedicated Metro station, the area isn’t as well known as some of its neighbors like Cleveland Park or Woodley Park, but it’s got a growing following.
