I wish that the foot traffic and car traffic was smoother. However, all in all good neighborhood highly accessible. I live near the Smithsonian Zoo so it's nice that it's right there and free!

Woodley Park is a great neighborhood to live. I really enjoy the international melting pot of its residents and local establishments/businesses. This particular area of DC is residential so it is a very dog friendly neighborhood. An additional perk is its proximity to Rock Creek Park and how the park provides trails for running and walking. Woodley Park is very close to the National Zoo and is easily accessed from other parts on DC using the bus lines or the metro.
Woodley Park is a lovely neighborhood during all times of the year with the small exception of one or two spring weeks when it is flooded with out of town tourists on their spring breaks flocking to the National Zoo. All other times of year Woodley Park is a lovely district north west residential neighborhood, with some very good restaurants such as Open City and Bar Cevita on busy Connecticut Avenue which breaks up the pretty, sleepy townhouse streets with traffic and restaurants. Woodley Park has its own metro station which is also very nice, and lots of trees. The neighborhood public schools are all very good; Oyster-Adams Bilingual is and exceptional elementary and middle school, and Woodrow Wilson High School is very good as well.
