“A hidden Gem in DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is a nice way to spend some quiet time in DC. The park is reached via a pedestrian bridge and it's then a secluded trail around the island. There is a monument to Teddy on the island, but the real reason for it is to walk in the woods by the river. Bad side is that if it's rained recently, I'd skip it as the island gets very soggy and muddy.

“Lovely walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Easy to reach by car, bike or foot. Refreshing walk in the fall in a peaceful setting near our bustling capital. Definitely worth a visit--nice views of the Potomac and monuments.

“Lovely green oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Woodsy getaway in the center of DC. A bit under-maintained, but still without peer as an urban natural oasis.
