Welcome to Shepherd Park Citizens Association (SPCA)!

Shepherd Park is a thriving, friendly, diverse and historic neighborhood in the District of Columbia. We are located in the northern "point" of DC -- north of Walter Reed Army Medical Center between Georgia Avenue and Rock Creek Park, and we include the neighborhoods between 16th Street and Rock Creek Park that are also known as Colonial Village and North Portal Estates. We have many long-time residents and many recent arrivals, but everyone shares a love for our beautiful neighborhood, with its abundance of trees and gardens and great variety of houses.

Shepherd Park was founded in the 19th century when the District's territorial governor, Alexander "Boss" Shepherd, built a summer mansion here. Since then, it has grown into a neighborhood that celebrates its diversity and friendliness. Shepherd Park has many unique and convenient characteristics, and is home to many families who have children attending our excellent local school, Shepherd Elementary, as well as families whose children attend one of the local private schools. We also have a variety of local houses of worship.

The Shepherd Park Citizens Association is a membership organization servicing residents of Shepherd Park, Colonial Village and North Portal Estates. The association's mission is to improve the quality of life for Shepherd Park residents. We hold regular membership meetings at which issues of local interest, such as the schools, public safety, property and the environment are discussed. We also host candidate forums in advance of local elections. The SPCA sponsors many special local events, including an annual community picnic, yard sale, potluck dinner and garden tour, and a Halloween parade. To keep our neighbors informed, we maintain this website and publish a quarterly newsletter. Although not sponsored by the SPCA, the nieghborhood also has a very active e-mail list-serve.

We encourage anyone interested in the Shepherd Park Citizens Association to join. Feel free to contact a member of the Board using the information in this website to ask questions and learn more about what our association does for one of the best neighborhoods in the city. You are welcome to attend any of the events listed in our calendar. You'll be very pleased with our unique neighborhood.
