The Palisades, or simply Palisades, is a neighborhood in Washington, D.C., along the Potomac River, running roughly from the edge of the Georgetown University campus (at Foxhall Road) to the D.C.-Maryland boundary (near Dalecarlia Treatment Plant). MacArthur Boulevard (once called Conduit Road) is the main thoroughfare that passes through the Palisades. In 1893, this subdivision was laid out by the Palisades Improvement Company. The Palisades had the Great Falls Electric Railway that ran from 36th and Prospect streets out to Glen Echo. The International Athletic Park and Amusement Company secured a large block of the Palisades and constructed a Bicycle Track and General Amusement Park, which opened on Decoration Day in 1896. Also encompassed within the Palisades is the neighborhood of Potomac Heights, which is bounded by Loughboro Road at the north end, Arizona Avenue at the south end and MacArthur Boulevard and the Potomac River.
Notable landmarks making the Palisades unique are the old Conduit Road Schoolhouse on MacArthur Boulevard, Palisades Community Church (1923), The Lab School of Washington (1967) (formerly the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers), the German Embassy, St. David’s Episcopal Church (1940), Sibley Hospital (1961) and Gen. Montgomery C. Meig’s Washington Aqueduct/ Delcarlia Filtration/ Water Treatment Plant (1853). The Palisades neighborhood is the home for a variety of popular restaurants such as Figs, Makoto, Bambu, Bistroquet, BlackSalt, Chen’s Gourmet, Seventh Hill Pizza, Kotobuki, DC Boathouse, Et Voila’ and the new Salt and Pepper Restaurant, and its very own pet supply store, Profeed of DC. A high point of the year for many in the neighborhood is the annual July 4 parade, featuring local bands, fire engines and children on highly decorated tricycles and bicycles.
