Named after Woodley House, the mansion built by Philip Barton Key, the uncle of “Star Spangled Banner” author Francis Scott Key, Woodley Park is a neighborhood located in Northwest Washington, DC.
The Woodley Park neighborhood is characterized by regal homes, elegant landscapes, and its proximity to Rock Creek Park—the largest park in the District—and, the National Zoo, where the morning roar of lions and other animal calls are said to be heard by the neighborhood residents.
Our Woodley Park “Neighborhoods” ticket depicts the architectural wonder of the Taft Bridge, and the natural wonder of Rock Creek Park. Named for William Howard Taft, our nation’s 27th President, and completed in 1907, the arch bridge is nearly 1,000 feet in length. It is adorned with four imposing lion statues that greet traversers, two at each entrance. The third national park established by the United States, Rock Creek Park was established by an act of Congress in 1890.
