CHEVY CHASE CIRCLE, at the intersection of Connecticut and Western Avenues and four other streets, is a traffic circle like none other:
- It is part of the U.S. National Park Service system and managed through Rock Creek Park
- It is a gateway to the Nation’s Capital and historically, the 1890 gateway to the new suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland
- It spans the District-Maryland line
- Its fountain was dedicated by an Act of Congress in 1933
