Cooper's Grove is centrally located in Alexandria Va. It is just over two miles outside of Old Town and the King St and Eisenhower Avenue Metro stations, minutes from 495 and Alexandria Hospital, and a short distance to all four of the high schools in the City. It is located on a quiet cul-de-sac off of Duke Street where new homes are being built and older ones are being expanded. The neighborhood celebrates holidays such as Halloween with a Trick or Treat Event, Memorial Day with a picnic, and Superbowl with a Party along with other informal potluck gatherings. It is common to find the cul-de-sac full of kids and adults in the summer waiting for the local ice-cream truck to arrive. Residents enjoy nature hikes along the trail of Fort Williams Park that runs behind the community. Restaurants such as Panera Bread, Rocklands, Port City Brewery and Z Pizza just to name a few are a 10 minute walk as is the Giant. Whole Foods is 5 minutes by car going east and Harris Teeter is 5 minutes away going west.
The Grove is located next to the wooded preserve of Fort Williams Park and Strawberry Run, a historical site, which was a campground for native American Indians and later Civil War soldiers. The community takes its namesake from General Samuel Cooper who owned the former Cameron plantation on which it borders.
