I believe the primary difference between this and the other wonderful parks of Washington, D.C. is the film showing the construction in the 1930s and its early use as a children's vacation camp. It is a beautiful site to visit and well worth the time.

this is a beautiful and well kept park close to DC. the trails are well marked and the staff is friendly and helpful. Recommended to go out and escape fro the city noise.

We are not into doing all the hiking and or biking trails, but if... 更多
