It was such a nice diversion to walk through the park with its flowering cherry trees (not the oriental trees, but gorgeous nonetheless), tulips and other lovely flowers and flowering trees.
... the exquisite pavilion (designed by Philip Johnson) of pre-Hispanic arts; and the gardens, which are formal and Italian at the top of a hill and become wilder as you go down a slope into the public park.

Wonderful sculpture park outside the main National Gallery building, with a large fountain at its center.
A group of large, unusual sculptures are scattered throughout a park with lots of flowers and shrubs around a lovely pond.

You can park on the street close by and are shown around by a guide, it may be worth booking in advance but we were lucky and got tickets at the door .

From the Pandas park to the Ross Spoonbill in the Amazon section, to the seals, Lions, gorillas, and a myriad of small exotic mammals this place is a true animal life sanctuary.
Even though we visited at the beginning of March, when nature is only starting to come alive, the visit was fantastic; the settings are well thought, I can only imagine how beautiful it must be during summer!

If you exit and walk under the building to the mall there's also a sculpture park over the road with benches and a fountain.
Spring is awakening here and the sculptures have yet to compete...they stand in their glory with nature about to unfold.

Loved Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens - really different to other botanical gardens you visit, as really does focus on the beautiful lillies and lotus lillies, which are all over the place!
There is also an amazing amount of wildlife both in the gardens as well as around the boardwalk which winds its way around the park, also worth the walk.

Lovely place to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature just minutes from DC. Trails are mostly shaded through the woods, some go down to the water's edge and some are on boardwalks crossing over a marsh area.
Beautiful and sersne park near downtown DC, it is on its own island and in the center is a beautiful memorial to Teddy Roosevelt.

Good for a peaceful stroll along the water, stop at the park with the kids, sit in one of the many cozy spots with a book or a friend, stop in one of the many waterfront establishments for a drink or a meal.
We came to visit family , went to the park for the first time , it was very clean and family friendly , the whole area was very well kept.

There are also cool statues (Joan of Arc, Buchanan, and others) hidden throughout the park and plenty of green space or benches to read, sun bathe, or picnic.
In the warmer months, this park is amazing - green everywhere - grass and trees, the cascading fountain is just beautiful.

Situated between Independence Ave and 1st Street SW is a small park with the Bartholdi fountain as its centerpiece.
We saw the park while visiting the Botanical Gardens and decided to stop.

Situated directly east of the United States Capitol, on East Capitol and 11th Street in the northeastern quadrant of the city, Lincoln Park was the site of a hospital during the Civil War.
We had an enjoyable walk through and around "Lincoln Park" which has the original memorial statue to Abraham Lincoln before the larger and more more famous version was built on the National Mall.

I really enjoyed crossing the bridge with the beautiful view of the Georgetown University, and then stopping at the Park before walking around the restaurants and shops and eventually walking to Georgetown.
The park is dedicated to the poet writing the text for the national anthem.
