I happened to come through here on a perfect fall day. It's true, you come here and immediately forget you're in a major city. Wildlife like chipmunks and squirrels run amok, the wind blows in the trees, and the air smells like dirt and greenery. I came here looking for a phantom dog park, and I didn't find it. So... More

One interesting feature is the "ropewalk" bordered by red brick used for laying out hemp to be turned into long ropes. The interior of the park is shaded by old trees, and combines effectively with the adjacent Dumbarton Oaks Park run... More

Montrose Park is a NPS-run neighborhood gem in Georgetown providing some solace from the city. It's pretty big as far as parks go and it's a great launching point to access the wooded trail system through Rock Creek and Dumbarton Oaks. The park has some amendies,such as, picnic tables, tennis courts (these are in need of rehab) and a playground... More
