Good resting spot

Good for resting. It's elevated, you can stop and rest. Other than that not much. Skateboarding takes place at times at one end too.

Roslyn's "urban planning" which created much of the area in the 1980s was not successful - the area is a concrete canyon. Freedom park, however, is a great respite if you happen to be stuck in Rosslyn (and for some reason not walking across Key Bridge to Georgetown) or Memorial Bridge to the National Mall. It's not a destination per... More

Not really much of a park, but a good spot for people watching and having a sandwich outside before you go on to your next attraction.

My sister, her kids, and I were really excited about going here after reading the good review about the park! We were disappointed when we got there and none of the things mentioned in the other review were there. There is no statue of Lenin or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s jail door or part of a cobblestone street from... More

Our oldest son had visited Freedom Park on a Spring '07 trip to Washington DC and encouraged us to stop there on our June visit. It was an easy Metra ride to the Rosslyn stop and a short walk from there. There's this little park just above busy city streets with historical artifacts all relating to freedom...and it's wonderful! There's... More
