Fort Dupont Features & Amenities
Fort Dupont is a delightful neighborhood in Southeast DC, named for the Civil War fortress that stands within the adjacent Fort Dupont Park. The fort was one of many constructed outside the heart of the District, along with many others in what is now Arlington County, to protect the capital from Confederate invasion. The park now provides access to multiple forms of recreation including basketball, tennis, hiking, biking, and baseball. Within spitting distance of their home turf, the Washington Nationals Baseball Academy is also housed within this green space.
The park is also a fantastic place for nearby residents to enjoy live music. One of the few remaining holdovers from the 'Summer in the Parks,' initiative of the late 1960's, Fort Dupont Park hosts six large-scale concerts every summer.
Fort Dupont Housing & Schools
Fort Dupont is a very well maintained neighborhood and housing opportunities consist largely of townhouses and garden apartments with a number of bungalows and two-story duplexes mixed in. In addition to Fort Dupont Park, the neighborhood also stands adjacent to Fort Chaplin Park which serves as the backdrop for The Seed School and the Benning Stoddert Recreation Center.
Fort Dupont Transportation & Location
Fort Dupont has no Metro Station, however, the Benning Rd Metro Station on the Blue and Silver Lines is located nearby in the Benning neighborhood.
Fort Dupont is bounded by East Capitol St NE to the north, 49th St SE to the east, G St SE to the south, and Minnesota Ave NE to the west.
