In the heart of the Fort Lincoln neighborhood sits Fort Lincoln Park, with its one-of-a-kind view of the city and beautiful open-air gazebo-like structures scattered around the six-acre park. Situated high on a ridge with walking trails, playgrounds, and towering Honey Locust trees, this historic treasure of green space is cherished by the community. Located in the northeastern quadrant of D.C., bordering Maryland to the north, and the upper Anacostia River to the East. The name Fort Lincoln dates back to the Civil War and a military fort that was built in 1861 for the defense of Washington.
Known for it’s bungalows, craftsman homes and ramblers, For Lincoln boasts being home to the shops at Dakota Crossing. Being close to the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, Highway 50 and Bladensburg Road, getting in and out of DC from this community is, to say the least, easy! To the neighborhood’s south is the National Arboretum, a 446-acre research, education and public gardens. This is also home to the National Capitol Columns, the National Grove of Trees, and the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum.
