Owner description: Not just a park in the city, but a kind of leisurely museum, with a scattering of Civil War forts, a cemetery and a 19th-century mill within its bounds.

“A sublime refuge from the bustling city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

It's an immense, largely passive park. It's a place where the din of the river, birds and rustling leaves drown out traffic just a block or two away. There are tennis courts and a golf course, but mostly you can make your own fun--hiking, courting, picnicking, riding a bike, reading in solitude. An extraordinary asset for Washington.

“The Great Outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I'm a Washingtonian and have always loved the quiet getaways in Rock Creek Park. Its a place that brings calmness and serenity. A place where you can think, play, eat, exercise or just "BE". If you haven't been in a while a visit should be at the top of your bucket list.

“Wonderful Place to Visit and Relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Take time out to visit the park, pack a picnic, walk, relax, or ride horses. There are so many things to do in the park and it is very well maintained.
