This is a one-square block area in the working business section of the city- 17th and K Street. It's a grassy area and probably is full of white collar workers and K Street lobbyists when it is not the subzero polar vortex that blew me...More

Small but nice square with statue in the middle. I was surprised by the number of food trucks surrounding the square.

The Farragut Square is, well, a square. A few states, a bit of green. Out of the city madness but nothing mind blowing. A nice walk through if you're heading from your hotel past the white house to the Mall. Otherwise, no need so specifically...More

There are two DC Metro stops that bear the Farragut name, neither of which is right on the square. So when I finally found Farragut Square, I was somewhat disappointed at it's size, but very pleased with the fact that it truly is a little...More

I passed this small square when I was walking from my hotel towards The National Mall and made small rest here. This is nice place to sit and do people watching. It is close to White house and Lafayette Square.

A nice small park in the middle of the city. Stopped by here when I was walking back to my hotel after meeting a friend for a meal. The park has benches to sit on.

Because my former office was located just across from this Park, my friends and I used to have lunch here during Summertime. There were different groups of musicians playing music here every Friday, around noon. There was no fee charged for this entertainment! I wonder...More

The only reason that I can think to go here is for lunch at one of the 10-20 food trucks that line two sides of the square. Most options are priced between $9 and $12 at any of them. Ate there three times last week,...More

A welcome contrast to the bustle of K street, and a soothing bit of nature to ease the morning commute, as well as a solemn memorial to a true patriot and hero, Admiral David (“Damn the torpedoes, full spent ahead!”) Farragut.

Travelled to Farragut West metro station as the tour bus has a stop next to the square - metro exit is right opposite. Square is named after “the first admiral of the navy” (never heard of him) and the only inscription on his statue in...More
