Westbard lies in the southwestern part of Montgomery County, approximately one mile from the D.C. boundary line. It is less than two miles from the commercial areas of Friendship Heights and Bethesda. The Westbard area is served by two major northwest to southeast highways: River Road and Massachusetts Avenue and is surrounded by well-established single-family neighborhoods. Over a period of years, the residential uses were built around the commercial/industrial areas which extend along River Road and Westbard Avenue. The popular regional Capital Crescent Trail runs the length of Westbard.
