AU Park Features & Amenities
American University is actually located just south of the neighborhood, in Spring Valley, but AU’s Washington College of Law is in AU Park. Dining and shopping options are somewhat limited, but there are a few fantastic local spots in the Spring Valley Shopping Center. Wagshal's Market may be the best locally owned grocery store in all of Washington, DC, and Crate & Barrel, Tara Thai restaurant, and HomeMade Pizza Company all share the same center. Tenleytown and Friendship Heights are east and north of AU Park, respectively, and offer a great deal of retail options close by. Friendship Park and Recreation Center (also known as Turtle Park) is at the southern end of the neighborhood and the focal point of the community.
AU Park Property Values
American University Park is one of the most suburban-like neighborhoods you can find within Washington, DC. Almost all of the neighborhood is residential and consists of single-family colonial homes built in the 1920’s. Many have been expanded and renovated since then. Most houses and lots are moderately sized, and many are built relatively close to their neighbors, which residents say helps foster community spirit. The neighborhood is known for its well-educated and concerned residents. Most homes sell for more than $1 million, so prices are on the high end in American University Park.
