Dupont Park- A Hidden Gem

dupont park - washington dc

A true hidden gem in the DC area, Dupont Park offers the appeal of nearby green space and the allure of a number of different housing styles. From townhouses and apartments to bungalows, Colonials and Foursquares, you’ll find it all possible living in the neighborhood of Dupont Park.

Named after the nearby park, the Dupont Park neighborhood is partially bounded by Fort Dupont Park. With hundreds of acres of forested trails for hiking, it’s a great location to go on a nature walk, do some biking or take in some live music during the park’s summer concert series.

Many homes in the neighborhood are within walking distance of the park. There’s even a local ice arena for year-round ice-skating and hockey.

The neighborhood also offers easy access to other outdoor recreation like baseball, tennis and basketball. The park-like setting extends to the neighborhood itself, where it’s common to find tree-lined streets and well-kept homes.

While perhaps still more affordable than other DC area neighborhoods, prices are going up in Dupont Park. This is happening as more and more prospective buyers come to discover what this neighborhood has to offer.

The diverse homes of Dupont Park easily range from a one-bedroom, one-bath condo to a sprawling five-bedroom home or a three-bedroom rowhouse. Some report interest is only going up as the city continues to invest in cleaning up the Anacostia and completing nearby infrastructure projects.

Not to be confused with the widely known Dupont Circle neighborhood in DC’s northwest quadrant, Dupont Park sits in southeast DC. This quiet neighborhood is primarily residential, which is a big part of the appeal for many buyers.

While you won’t find a Metro Station in Dupont Park, it’s possible to head to nearby Buena Vista to catch public transportation. The community is also serviced by Metrobus routes.
