A Victorian house in Riverdale Park

Riverdale Park is home to about 5,000 economically and culturally diverse people, both long-time and new residents. We are a family-oriented community. Our many places of worship reflect a multi-denominational character, and most of our children attend neighborhood schools. Young adults who were raised here are returning to raise their own families because of the small-town ambiance in a suburb close to Washington, D.C.

You can find Victorian and Craftsman style homes built in the late-19th-century and early-20th-century, Capes and Bungalows built before World War II, as well as Split Foyer and Ramblers built in the latter half of this century. New houses in a variety of architectural styles can be found throughout the town. Tree-lined streets connect residential and business areas.

A few miles north and east of Our Nation's Capitol, Washington, D.C., Riverdale Park is close to a large number of museums (don't miss the squished penny museum!) and art galleries. The metropolitan area also has quite a few places to see plays, dance and musical performances of all sorts. A center of higher-level education, the D.C. metropolitan area is home to a number of public and private universities.

We are Inside the Beltway, but you can ignore the politicos if you want to!
