Parks and Recreation

Although Burleith is very close to the center of the city, a 5-minute walk into the park can bring you into the middle of the woods, with no houses in sight. Administered by the National Park Service, Glover Archbold Park borders Burleith on the north and west. Two sections of Glover Archbold Park are open areas that are special recreation areas for Burleith. More →

Burleith is a walkable and bikeable community. Although not on a Metrorail (subway) line, the neighborhood is well served by public buses that go to or near several Metro stations en route. The D buses are convenient to Dupont Circle (Red line); the 30s buses serve Tenleytown (Red line) and Foggy Bottom (Blue/Orange/Silver lines). Each station is about a mile away (including Rosslyn station in VA), so heartier souls may prefer to walk. More →
