Michigan Park can be described similarly to many other NE neighborhoods around it. Peaceful, tree-lined streets, big yards, well kept homes. But we love the stately colonial homes in Michigan Park that it’s clear have been loved and cared for by their owners for years. Michigan Park is a tight-knit community that is appealing to families and people searching for more space. Given the proximity to Catholic University, it’s no surprise that much of the land in the area is owned by the Catholic church. You’ll find St. Anselm’s Abbey, as well as a convent for the Carmelite Sisters. For those of us who live in the area, the North Michigan Park recreation center playground is a popular playdate meeting spot. But not having a car in this neighborhood can be pretty inconvenient as there isn’t a whole lot within walking distance and the buses don’t always run that often or that late.
