The District Government provides a wide array of city services for residents and our neighborhood.  Most services can be accessed through calling 311, the Citywide call center.  However, details on other services and programs such as free fire alarms and permitting for a block party can be found here.

Deanwood is within the District Ward Seven. The Ward is divided into Neighborhood Advisory Commissions, and Deanwood is in Advisory Neighborhood Commission 7C as well as small portion of 7D.

The District Government’s public safety core agencies are the Metropolitan Police Department and the Fire & EMS Department.  These entities provide the majority of the Public Safety assistance available in DC.

Education for advancement and uplift is a principle deeply rooted in the Deanwood Community.  We are proud of our schools and our students!  Within its boundaries, Deanwood has  1 elementary school and 2 public high schools, including the District's only all male prep school.  Several other schools serve Deanwood families depending on their location and zoning.

Deanwood and surrounding neighborhoods have much to offer regarding green space and recreation.  Deanwood has a Recreation Center, which includes an Olympic-length pool, basketball courts, and a full-length field.  Kenilworth Park, Aquatic Gardens, the US National Arboretum, and the historic Langston Golf Course are all nearby.

There is also a virtual tour titled Trees of Deanwood, which our friends at Capital Nature put together. You can take the tour here
