    The park is so huge and we only had a couple of hours. Will definitely have to go back during the different growing seasons!

    Beautiful Garden Perfect for Photos. This garden is always so beautifully maintained and the perfect location for a picturesque stroll just off national mall

    Use this Nature Center as your base to find the elusive Capitol stones, hike through Rock Creek Park, or join the Planetarium programming.

    Accessible by public transportation and well maintained trails.

    I cam across this garden during a walk and entered on a whim. It was winter and raining so I did not see it at its best. It comprises a large garden surrounding the Washington international school housed in a large old mansion and the garden surrounds it on three sides. The entrances are off Macomb street and Klingle road. The garden is historic and includes many old trees, shrubs and no doubt flowers in summer. There are two main trails to follow - one which follows the Macomb stream and the other, the meadow trail, goes right around the garden to, at the Klingle road end, a lily pond. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
