Not just a park in the city, but a kind of leisurely museum, with a scattering of Civil War forts, a cemetery and a 19th-century mill within its bounds.

Love, love, love Rock Creek Park. Always discovering new corners, new walks. It's beautiful in winter, in summer, in spring, in fall... Have seen bald eagles, beavers, and lots of deer, snakes. Love that they close off Beach Drive on Sundays

RCP has a lot to offer but keep in mind it is in an urban setting. Use common sense and don't run/hike with headphones, alone or after dark. A little street smarts will ensure that your visit will be memorable for all the right reasons!

We explore the park every time we are in DC and are constantly finding new things to see and do. There are trails, fitness resources, playgrounds for the children and beautiful scenery providing a green retreat in the middle of DC. Definitely worth exploring.

When you're in Rock Creek Park, you genuinely forget that you're in the middle of DC. There are so many great trails for walking, running, and biking. Of course there's also the National Zoo if you're traveling with kids. It's also a beautiful drive if...More

This huge park has great trails for all abilities. Run, jog, walk or bike the miles of paths and enjoy Mid Atlantic nature at its best. There is much greenery and the lovely babbling creek
