The Gymnasium's location within National Park Seminary is as beautiful as it is convenient. Inside the Beltway in Silver Spring accompanied by a 13-acre forested glen, it offers quick access to major north-south throughfares, easy public and mass transit through Forest Glen Metro Station, and offers tremendous amenities on a storybook campus setting.
The Gymnasium is portrayed toward the top left of this 1926 painting of National Park Seminary's beautiful grounds by H.D. Nichols.
The Gymnasium at National Park Seminary enjoys access to downtown Washington, DC by four major north-south routes, easy access to Northern Virginia and Maryland via I-495, I-95, and I-270, and ample cycling and jogging throughout the expansive river basin of Rock Creek Park.
The National Park Seminary location of The Gymnasium is one mile from the Forest Glen Metro Station and offers quick access to the Beltway and multiple north-south throughfares, including Connecticut Avenue, the Rock Creek Parkway, 16th Street, and Georgia Avenue.
This 1907 survey map by G.V.Chandler of the National Park Seminary campus is overlaid with the era buildings as they stand in modern times. In spite of many series of expansions and improvements to the campus since 1907, the site continues to enjoy the old campus feel and benefits from the wide, forested glen depicted at the top of this map.
