“Nice stop on a tour around the mall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went on a late July evening. The water was green, weeds kind of tall, area is in need of maintenance and care. A lot of bugs, and extremely noisy due to its location next to the freeway. Don't go out of your way. George Mason has a smile on his face, though!

“Small, peaceful memorial”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This memorial is not far from the well-known ones around the Tidal Basin, but you're unlikely to see it unless you are looking for it or stumble upon it by accident.

There's not much here. A single informational sign explains who George Mason was. The memorial itself is a bronze statue of Mason sitting on a bench in a landscaped garden surrounding a small fountain (which was not on when I was there, resulting in the fountain becoming an algae-covered pond). There are some other benches covered with a canopy next to the Mason statue.

This is a nice, quiet spot away from the bustle and throngs visiting the nearby monuments and memorials; a good spot to stop to rest and relax, but not much to see or do here.

“Nice memorial in close proximity to the other memorials.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a nice memorial that is not too far from the other popular memorials. It was well-landscaped and clean. George Mason is important to our history-worth stopping by.

“The Forgotten George”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is really a nice memorial. They must have done some landscaping since the previous reviews because it looked really nice in June 2013. The fountain looked clean and hedge that surrounded the memorial was trimmed. This area is often overlooked which is unfortunate. If you are by Jefferson Memorial swing by and check out George Mason, he really isn't that far away.
