One of the nicest and least appreciated parks in D.C. is a place officially called Meridian Hill Park but known to everyone as Malcolm X Park. Its 12 acres sit on a hill overlooking downtown and the monuments. John Quincy Adams lived in a mansion here after leaving the White House. Today, there are spooky statues and cascading pools of water, more reminiscent of a neglected European chateau garden than a National Park Service tract. Visit late on a Sunday afternoon to dance to the sounds of the ad hoc drum circle that has been forming weekly since the 1950s.

PARKING: Parking in the neighborhood is at a premium.
There are plenty non-car options which we highly recommend. Several bus lines, the Circulator, Metro, bike share and scooters. If you must drive, our side of the street is resident only, the opposite side is two hour parking for cars without residential sticker. Parking enforcement is vicious.
