Kingman Park Features & Amenities
There are not a great deal of commercial choices in this residential neighborhood, but there is the popular Langston Bar and Grille, an upscale soul food restaurant on Benning Rd NE. H Street Corridor and Capitol Hill are nearby and provide a lot more options. Rosedale Recreation Center provides an area for the neighborhood’s youth and the Anacostia Park offers a playground and trails.
The neighborhood has had a very strong civic presence throughout its history, which has included successfully fighting a Metro station, highway extension, theme park, and new football stadium from being built in Kingman Park. RFK Stadium, the home of the DC United soccer team, stands at the southeastern corner of the area. However, there are tentative plans to tear it down and build the club a new stadium at Buzzards Point, which could mean some changes for the area.
Kingman Park History & Housing
Kingman Park is a Northeast DC neighborhood that has a lot of potential with its proximity to the H Street Corridor and Capitol Hill. Also known as Rosedale, the neighborhood is named after Brigadier General Dan Christie Kingman, who was the head of the Army Corps of Engineers. Kingman Park was founded in 1928 and its real estate consists mostly of two-story brick row homes.
