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.
