Lady Bird Johnson Park contains the LBJ Memorial grove and offers nice views of the DC skyline. We liked it but didn't find it nearly as peaceful as it could have been, given the prevalence of traffic nearby.

I ran the Mount Vernon Trail and stopped to rest here. A convenient place to stop with on the MVT. Having a water fountain and bathroom would make this Park better.

I spent time walking through this park while in D.C. and had a nice, relaxing time. The fact that this is right in the middle of such an historic place shows how well this area was planned. I loved it.
