Apartments for rent in Petworth​ are situated in the northern, suburban enclave of Washington D.C. in a laid-back, family-oriented community, comprised of parks, domestic thoroughfares, schools and local businesses. There, you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy the invigorating environment of the nearby city center, yet be afforded a relaxed atmosphere where you can unwind and find serenity.

Outdoor Activity
On bright, sunny days, you can head to one of the neighborhood parks with your little ones to enjoy some fun in the sun. At the Keene Recreation Center, you'll be able to hang out with your new neighbors, enjoy a picnic of homemade food or toss around the football. You may also want to stop by the Turkey Thicket Playground on Michigan Avenue. This well-kept public domain has a jungle gym where the kids can run about with their new friends. Also on the premise is a baseball diamond, where you can play a game of slow-pitch softball. For some friendly competition and a good workout, practice your backhand at the local tennis courts on Taylor Street or do a couple laps around the track. 

Education
Residents of the Petworth apartments for rent will be afforded a premier education at one of the nearby institutions. If you want your children to attend one of the local public schools, there's Barnar Elementary, and for a private school they can enroll at Christian Family Montessori. Also available to them is the local charter school, Center City PCS, which is just a short drive away on Webster Street. Those who are interested in going back to class to bolster their resume or switch careers may want to think about the nearby Marist College on Varnum Street, which offers academic programs in communications, computer science and management. 

Transportation
If you need to get into downtown Washington D.C. or one of its outer neighborhoods, you can always utilize the local metro system. Fort Totten metro station is within walking distance of the apartments in Petworth​, and the Brookland Cua metro is a short drive south. 

Shopping
For residents who need to pick up some necessary home goods or groceries for the Petworth apartments, all the essentials can be purchased at the local CVS Pharmacy or the Sargent Road Shopping Center on Chillum Road.
