| Glover Park is a family-friendly neighborhood
located in the District of Columbia high on a hill above the Potomac River,
just north of Georgetown. It includes both sides of Wisconsin Avenue from
Whitehaven Parkway to Calvert Street and then extends northward on the
west side of Wisconsin to Fulton Street. Its western boundary is 42nd street
along the edge of Glover-Archibald Park. Glover Park is a neighborhood
of row houses, apartment buildings and a busy commercial strip of Wisconsin
Avenue. Residents appreciate the convenience and hometown atmosphere of
the neighborhood and its beautiful natural setting.
