Why Parkchester? Park Chester community was selected because of its visible location in Anacostia and the need to bring the promise and opportunities provided with HRAP'S vision to adopt communities east of the Anacostia River. A community with a high concentration of crime and poverty, the community is in pressing need of the services and opportunities presented by our HRAP's program initiatives. The community area is bounded by Firth Sterling Avenue on the west, Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue on the east, St. Elizabeth’s West on the south and Suitland Parkway on the north.
