Lafayette Park

Nine Acres of Paradise in the Heart of Chevy Chase-DC

Lafayette Park is one of the finest assets of our wonderful Chevy Chase-DC neighborhood, and the Friends of Lafayette Park (FOLP) is an organization of neighbors dedicated to preserving and improving the park.

The FOLP was founded in 1999, and over the nearly two decades of volunteer work has implemented a number of enhancements to the park and worked with city officials to improve the park.

Lafayette Park is located in Northwest Washington DC, in Ward 4. The park is nine acres and is run by the Department of Parks and Recreation. It shares the site with Lafayette Elementary School, part of the DC Public School System. The site is framed by the following streets, Quesada, Broad Branch, 33rd, and Northampton on the south side of the park. The park is open daily to the public and closed after dark.
