The Montrose Park is a public park, owned by the federal government, located in the 3000 block of R Street, Northwest, Washington, D.C., in the Georgetown neighborhood. It is located between Dumbarton Oaks Park, and Oak Hill Cemetery.
In addition to a large children's play area in the back of the park, there are two sets of tennis courts, as well as open space with footwalks and trails which lead into Rock Creek Park.
It was early owned by ropemaker Robert Parrott, who allowed the community to use it as a picnicing ground. Sarah Louisa Rittenhouse successfully led a group to lobby Congress to acquire the property as an addition to Rock Creek Park.

  • We have been hitting this park pretty often lately. It's quiet but has all the essentials. My girls like the jungle gym and the swings. Lots of dog watching too with the neighbors bringing their dogs around the nearby trails. Oh and there's a restroom even though it doesn't show up on the description.
  • Great park for all humans, small and big and their canine companions. My kids love the playground, dated but great climbing and swings. Great ball chasing fields next to playground and the trails of Rock Creek Park directly below.
