“two lane”(3 reviews)
Not just a park in the city, but a kind of leisurely museum, with a scattering of Civil War forts, a cemetery and a 19th-century mill within its bounds.

This is one of our favorite places to get away from the crowds of DC, especially in the summer. The park is huge, has tons of playgrounds, places to hang out with your dog, sports areas, and the National Zoo is even located in here...More

Rock Creek is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the city, well groomed trails for runners, all covered by the shade surrounding Rock Creek.

Peaceful, charming, wild enough to forget about the city noise and soigne enough not to see human footprints.

Beautiful, serene and peaceful trail for locals and visitors to get fresh air and shades. Lots of picnic areas and exercise stations. You will need to share the trail with bicyclists so be on the lookout for them.
