Silence Your Cell Phone for a Stroll Through These Scenic Washington, DC Parks

March 27, 2015 5:02 pm

If you’re starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of city life, Washington, DC is home to a number of relaxing parks that can help you to de-stress while being surrounded by nature. Leave your cell phone at home, take a break from emails, and go for a stroll in one of these urban green spaces.

Meridian Hill Park
With a stunning multi-level fountain that flows into a large duck pond, Meridian Hill Park is certainly a sight to see. This European-inspired park is conveniently located minutes from the popular U Street stretch, but it offers respite from the crowds and noise. There is also a grassy knoll perfect for picnics, a number of historic statues, and even some ducks that call the park home.

Gravelly Point Park
There are few things more relaxing than watching planes fly through the sky, and Gravelly Point Park offers the perfect opportunity to do just that. The park is situated just across from Regan International Airport, which means that visitors can watch the planes take off while lounging on the grassy hillside. There are also a few wooden picnic tables, a jogging path, and fields where you can join a pick-up game of soccer or football.
