I live nearby and can testify this is the most underrated destination in DC. Especially on a spring / summer day, go here for some rest between sight seeing. Bring a picnic or pick up some food nearby at Harris teeter.

Beautiful park with great architecture. There's beautiful arches and stairs where you can enter. It's lined with amazing trees and a nice place to take a walk and relax in the city.

Took a walk and discovered this park with it's grand cascading fountains, terraced landscaping and walking paths. The only thing not park-like and tranquil was the police car parked in the middle of the playing field. Oh well, it still is a urban area.

Meridian Hill Park is one of the more beautiful parks in DC. The cascading stairs on either side of the very large waterfall like fountain make quite the impression on your first visit. That said, the park is so frequented by locals (and at night...More
