For the past week and the foreseeable near future, the pond is being cleaned with dumpsters of organic waste. You probably should avoid walking around this due to the smell. Walk around the reflecting pool instead.

Very dirty and in need of urgent maintenance - especially the pond, with litter stuck in the mud was quite upsetting. This place could be lovely, so I hope it will be tidied up soon.

Located just north of the reflection pool between the WWII memorial and Lincoln Memorial, this garden and pond is worth the stop. We stopped at sunset and it was lovely! A couple Magnolia trees and some cherry blossoms make the island quite picturesque!
