After a long winter here in Washington, D.C., spring is finally almost here. On March 20, we’ll once again be on our way to the green grass, beautiful trees and colorful flowers that our region boasts, even in a bustling city.
Some of the best ways to experience spring without going too far from our RESA apartments are our local parks, where you can go for a walk, a run, or a leisurely stroll with the baby or dog. Strap on your sneakers and head to these Washington, D.C. parks this month!
Lower Senate Park, located at 200 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, D.C. which will take you eight minutes to get to via car, is an urban greenspace with trees and grass offering paved walking areas, fountains and a reflecting pool.
The park is divided into two distinct sections. The lower section contains a shallow rectangular reflecting pool flanked by wide pathways and fountains and is bounded by two sets of steps, while the upper section is centered on a large fountain and plaza and a tree-lined lawn panel connecting to the Senate and Capitol grounds.
Crispus Attucks Park, located at 23 U St NW, Washington, D.C. which is a straightforward 10-minute trip from home, is a popular urban park including lots of green space, benches and trails that is known for its secluded feel.
Crispus Attucks Park is a hidden 1.06-acre oasis of flowers, trees and grass, stretching the length of a city block and the width of a half-dozen rowhouses. It’s named in honor of Crispus Attucks, an African-American former slave and the first person to lose his life in the Boston Massacre, heralding the beginning of the American Revolution.
