The statue of scouts is located near the White House and the Constitution Avenue. That scout family wandered in Washington park.

The Boy Scout Memorial is located on the Ellipse. It is not worth going out of one's way to see unless you're into scouting. The area also does not appear well maintained.

Only stopped and quickly looked at it as we walked by. This was a walk doing the mall and a small tribute to the scouts, I was one. But, I would not go out of the way for it, no disrespect.

Between the inappropriateness of the figures and the general untidiness of the park surrounding this statue, it was a bit of a let down. Top that off with yet another water feature that featured no water! Being so close to the White House had other...More

We are a Scouting family. Our sons were impressed to see a tribute to the BSA amongst statues and memorials commemorating our history.

Since my son is an Eagle Scout, I wanted to visit this memorial. It was an interesting tribute located just blocks from the White House. If you're in the area, you should go see it!
