Great Place To Stop

I ran the Mount Vernon Trail and stopped to rest here. A convenient place to stop with on the MVT. Having a water fountain and bathroom would make this Park better.

Just up the steps at the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier there is an area of display. Flags, Plaques and memorabilia and lots of information to take in. This building is air conditioned and there is a rest room. The Gardens and area surrounding are beautiful. It's a quiet restful area. Well looked after and cared for.

I spent time walking through this park while in D.C. and had a nice, relaxing time. The fact that this is right in the middle of such an historic place shows how well this area was planned. I loved it.

Lady Bird Johnson Park is situated on a long stretch of land beside the Potomac flanked by the George Washington Memorial Highway. There is a marina nearby, the Pentagon, a groove of trees and the LBJ monument. It is a low key and relaxing place to visit - especially in the spring when the daffodils are abundant.

Walking from Arlington to the Mall, we stumbled upon the park. It is very pretty, but could be easier to find with more signs. There is only one that I am aware of.

The view is the best. Parking is close by. Bring your picnic basket and plan to just relax, watch the planes from National Airport, the boats on the Potomac and the people on the adjacent jogging/bike paths!

Well kept and maintained, but trying to get in and out of the parking lot can be difficult. If you want this view of DC, consider parking at eitherthe Theodore Roosevelt Park to the north or Gravelly Point to the south (shorther distance) and walking or biking up. Oh, and avoide that place on the 4th! A great place to... More

This is a park accessible from the Pentagon parking lots and from the bike path along Potomac by taking a short tunnel under GW Parkway. The park has beautiful trees and a stark memorial to LBJ. It is adjacent to a marina, which is across from the Pentagon. There is a small snack bar at the marina and restrooms, which... More

This quiet park is a lovely place for a walk, bike ride or picnic. We parked behind the Pentagon and walked to it across the footbridge. In the spring, there is a good view of the cherry blossoms across the Potomac at Hains Point. I learned a little more about the personal side of President Lyndon B. Johnson. It's a... More
