“Very cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I run here often, and it's a beautiful place! I'm so glad whoever fixed it up did so. It's in a place with a wonderful view down the river, and its history is awesome--this was the original southern-most corner of DC for over 40 years!

“Southern Most Tip of DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Jones Point is a park just outside the beltway at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. It has only of the original DC boundary stones at the southern tip of the District of Columbia. The park has a lighthouse which is located about the boundary stone but was not open to the public while I was present. There is also some athletic courts located below the bridge. The bridge itself was the most impressive feature to me.
