  • Great area to go for a walk. Its usually not to crowded during the week. On the weekends, its a good place to take small kids. There is a little pool that is maybe knee high and tables to sit at.
  • Go in the evening, not on Nats game days so parking isn't a nightmare. This park is proof that a small slice of urban parkland can be magical. Water, grass, fountains, resteraunts... It is peaceful and green. Free outdoor movies in the summer.
