Get to Know the New Ave

Walking Tours   I   Find a cornucopia of goods to taste, feel, smell, listen to and admire and we've put together downloadable guides to lead the way.

Cycling   I   Access the New Ave via signed bike routes along quiet neighborhood streets, connect with nature on the Sligo Creek Trail, and join the fun on the annual Bike to Work Day.

Neighborhoods   I   With homes dating from the 1910's, 1940's and the sixties, each neighborhood has a unique character already discovered by residents.  Most are shaded with leafy full grown trees, feature well kept gardens, and tidy brick stoops or wooden porches.

Parks, Gardens, and Nature   I   The jewel of Takoma Park, the Sligo Creek Stream Valley, straddles the New Ave, with multiple playgrounds, picnic areas, and several community gardens, providing green space for everyone.
