Under renovation

Wonderful oasis. Looking for info about current renovation. Tennis courts being replaced? I love the quiet with city’s sounds in the distance.

A green oasis in Georgetown
Oct 2019
If you are looking to get away from the streets and buildings in Georgetown, there is grass and mature trees in Montrose Park. The park is quite large and is managed by the National Park Service. It is also adjacent to Dumbarton Oaks, which is a must see property, and runs into Rock Creek Park. NW DC is fortunate to have many green spaces to explore including this one. It is lovely in the spring and a great place to enjoy a sunny fall day.

Nice open space in Georgetown
Feb 2018 • Solo
Montrose Park is located on R Street (at the end of R Street in Georgetown) not far from Dumbarton Oak Museum. It is an open recreation space managed by the U.S. Park Services. Great place for dogs and human. There are also a few tennis courts and walking paths for humans (and dogs also). Great open space on the hill near Rock Creek Park and Dubarton Oak Park.

A good local park with walks and open areas
Nov 2016 • Solo
A good local park with walks and open areas. I entered it during a walk from Whitehaven Street where it crosses rock creek. A pleasant walk along a tree lined path leads to open areas much used by locals. It connects with Dumbarton Oaks park and on to Whitehaven and Glover-Archbold parks.

Lovely local park
Apr 2017 • Family
Nice local park in the heart of D.C. Nice for a stroll or picnic. Leads right into Dumbarton Oaks Park, which is also great for a walk or run. Nothing elaborate to see here; just nice to hang out and take a break from the city.

A nice change of scenery
Nov 2015
I happened to come through here on a perfect fall day. It's true, you come here and immediately forget you're in a major city. Wildlife like chipmunks and squirrels run amok, the wind blows in the trees, and the air smells like dirt and greenery. I came here looking for a phantom dog park, and I didn't find it. So instead, pup & I strolled through the park and down through the trails toward the back, which led us right into Dumbarton Oaks Park (not the gardens you pay admission to enter, but the national forest behind them that is open to the public during daylight hours). Dogs are supposed to stay on leash, I didn't see any that were running loose. Still, my dog had a great time bounding through the rolling hills of green. Can't wait to make this a regular part of our walking routine.

Dream of a park
May 2015 • Family
Imagine the park where you spent most of your childhood. That is if you had a great one. This is where my kids will remember their dreams of perfect childhood. This is where they had their parties, they saw their friends, they had their fun times. They saw tons of dogs, tennis courts, walked through trails and played in playgrounds.
The place of ones dreams, right on the doorsteps in Georgetown.

Local park
May 2015 • Couples
This is a local park in the vicinity of the Oak Hill Cemetery. There's not too much of interest here to justify a journey specifically to see the park, but it's nice enough to see if you happen to be in the area and wandering around.

Historic park great for a shady summer walk
Jul 2014 • Solo
This park was once the site for a rope manufactory where Richard Parrott made rope for the shipping trade. One interesting feature is the "ropewalk" bordered by red brick used for laying out hemp to be turned into long ropes. The interior of the park is shaded by old trees, and combines effectively with the adjacent Dumbarton Oaks Park run by the National Park Service (and reached by walking downhill along the "Lover's Lane" western boundary of Montrose Park) to form a nice nature area for summer walks.

For those on a walking tour and wondering where to find a restroom: Though not well marked, they are available in the small caretaker's shack on the southeast corner of the park.

Great neighborhood park
Jul 2012 • Solo
Montrose Park is a NPS-run neighborhood gem in Georgetown providing some solace from the city. It's pretty big as far as parks go and it's a great launching point to access the wooded trail system through Rock Creek and Dumbarton Oaks. The park has some amendies,such as, picnic tables, tennis courts (these are in need of rehab) and a playground area, but the park's best feature is the large swaths of green grass surrounded by beautiful mature trees. This place is amazing in the Fall and Spring.

If you happen to be walking through Georgetown and are looking for a place to take a break from the city this park is worth a stop.
