McLean Gardens is a residential neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C., bounded by Rodman Street NW to the north, Idaho Avenue to the south, Wisconsin Avenue to the east, and 39th Street NW to the west. At McLean Gardens, children still can meet each other on the playground, gardens can be planted in flower beds, dogs enjoy long walks with their owners on the sloping hills and yet the restaurants and shops and excitement of the city lie less than a block away. The National Cathedral sits just a few blocks away as an exquisite addition to the landscape.
The sense of community extends beyond the layout of the development to the residents themselves. Many of the homeowners participate in association activities. Over the years, they've organized everything from bridge clubs and tennis tournaments to dog-walking groups and lawn sales.
As a 1993 article in the Washington Post noted, If the residents of McLean Gardens in Northwest have anything in common, it's that they all love suburban life, and they all hate the suburbs.
McLean Gardens is close to Sidwell Friends School, home to several Presidential daughters and the Washington Ballet School. There are some great restaurants just a block or two away, like 2Amys, the pizza restaurant, and Cactus Cantina. There is a very old Giant grocery store, a CVS, Burka's Liquor Store, a Starbucks, and Sullivan's, one of the few old style toy stores left in America. It is a great place to call home. The Tenley Metro is even a ten minute walk away! What more could you want!
