Lyon Village sits between Lee Highway (North) Wilson Boulevard (South) Veitch Street (East) and Kirkwood Road (West). It has very easy access to I-395, The George Washington Parkway and I-66. It was founded in 1923 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Lyon Village playground has a kid’s water feature in warmer months, and a dog park with its own solar grid and water feature. The Lyon Village Citizens’ Association organizes several annual events such as the Spaghetti Dinner, the December Holiday Party, the 4th of July Parade and Picnic all held at the community house and park.
Lyon Village has the unique advantage of be served by two Metro’s Orange Line stops, Court House and Clarendon. Many residents take the Metro to work and to the many tourist attractions in Washington D. C.. Residents of Lyon Village also take advantage of the short walk to Clarendon with all it restaurants and night life.
The original housing of Lyon Village was built in the 1920’s and 1930’s on tree lined streets. Much of that housing stock has been renovated or replaced with newer houses. Most of the housing is single family detached, but there are some flanking condos, such as The Hartford (next the dog park), Cardinal House, The Residences of Lyon Hill, and The Astoria.
