A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall.

Farragut Square/Park is well maintained and clean. A historical plaque provides information on Farragut's naval experience in the Civil War. There are plenty of benches, and since the square is surrounded by food trucks, it should be a nice place to enjoy lunch in good weather.

Exiting the Farragut North Metro Station, I came across this small park or square. The hanging baskets planted with petunias are beautiful. Of course, located here is the big statue of a revolutionary leader, Farragut. There are several benches here that one can use to sit down and relax. I spent several minutes here before proceeding with my walk towards other DC attractions located near by.

We walked by and through this small park several times during our stay in DC.It is a nice, green area with park benches and nice statues to observe. I'd stay away from it after sundown, as the "patrons" seemed to get a little rougher, and several homeless folks were occupying the benches, but is was nice during the daytime.

In the center of the square is a statue of David G. Farragut, a Union admiral in the American Civil War famous for rallying his fleet with the cry, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" He was the "First Admiral in the Navy." Its only inscription is "Farragut."[8] The statue was sponsored by an act of Congress, authorizing $20,000 on April 16, 1872. It was sculpted by Vinnie (Ream) Hoxie and dedicated April 25, 1881 by President James A. Garfield and First Lady Lucretia Garfield.

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 past the site without even stopping to enjoy it. And the statue of Admiral Farragut- I would have enjoyed viewing that close up but I was almost late for my tour inside the White House. Your homework today is to look up who he was and what is his famous and immortal phrase. Your pal, Buc haish
