A fun place to stop a bit before or after you go up the “Rocky” stairs to the art museum. Be aware that some parts of the area may be gated due to an event.

Located at the bottom of the Art Museum stairs, Eakins Oval has a playground, as well as a large statue of Washington on horseback. It's a very nice park on the Parkway.
