Directions and Hours
Welcome to Tregaron! We hope you will visit soon and often. Please remember, we are a “work in progress,” on so many levels. Restoring this nearly 100-year old estate continues to be a labor of love that we want to share with you. A 20-acre historic landmark with 13 acres of woodland gardens, meadows, streams, trails and a restored lily pond — in the middle of busy Washington DC – it doesn’t get much better.
When is Tregaron open?
Our operating hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. There is no charge. Despite the costs of restoring the property, the Conservancy wants Tregaron to be enjoyed by the public without a fee. Of course, if you found this website, you know we gratefully accept donations to help support our efforts.
Please use the property while respecting others. If you happen to visit on a weekday, please stick to the trails, meadows and woodland. The Washington International School operates its middle and high schools in the Estate’s hilltop buildings. If you bring a dog, we require that he or she be leashed and please clean up after your pet.
Where is the Tregaron Conservancy located?
There are two entrances to Tregaron. One is at 3100 Macomb Street — this is also the entrance to the Washington International School’s driveway. As you walk up the driveway, part way up the road/hill, you will notice a path on your left that leads into the woods. Take this path and it will circle you through the property. (Trail maps are the next thing we need to tackle, but once on our bridle paths, you will find your way throughout the landscape with very little chance of getting lost. It may be a “secret garden,” but it is no mystery once you visit). The other entrance, on the south side of the property is along open Klingle Road. See instructions below.
Directions to the Macomb entrance:
You can get to 3100 Macomb Street via Connecticut Avenue, turning west off Connecticut onto Macomb Street. This entrance is about a ten-minute walk from the Cleveland Park Metro Station (red line). Head south on Connecticut when you exit the Metro toward the National Zoo. Take a right onto Macomb Street and walk approximately 2 blocks to 3100.
The second entrance is prettier and more authentic, as it is close to the original entrance, but it is a bit harder to find. It is located in the 3000 block of Klingle Road, NW.
Directions to the Klingle entrance:
From Wisconsin Avenue, turn east onto Woodley Road (passing the Cathedral itself). At the stoplight at Woodley and 34th, stay on Woodley Road; proceed straight for three more blocks until Woodley starts to curve right. Take a slight left onto Klingle Road. The fence gate entrance to Tregaron will be down the block on Klingle on your left (the north side of the street). If you are driving, it is not too difficult to find parking along these streets. There is a large sign at the Tregaron entrance, but no address.
I hope this is helpful. Enjoy your visit!
All the best,
Lynn Parseghian, Executive Director
