I found this on Trip Advisor, a complete surprise for a long-time resident of Alexandria. The Promenade, set on the banks of the Potomac, stretches up to an office complex with obelisk, a beautiful water fountain and some very interesting antique sculpture.

The officiant of my wedding told us she has performed several weddings there. The unusual sculpture elements and waterfall make for a dramatic photo backdrop.... More

Do not make a special trip to visit this park as the park is part of an office complex. OK for those of us that work in the office buildings around the park but here is nothing to do and there are no amenities.
