  • Great place to enjoy sunsets. Walk along the water is so beautiful. Got some perfect views of Tidal Basin and Bridge. Several benches also available to sit. Parking is free after 8 pm any day. Very close to National Mall. Watch out for bikers and runners.

  • Lovely water area with good fishing and impressive views of the surrounding monuments. Paths are well taken care of and the area feels surprisingly safe. Water is dirty and fishing is not allowed at all locations around the basin.

  • A tranquil and picturesque spot in the capital of the United States of America. I have a lot of beautiful memories coming here with my family when Dad was assigned as a junior officer in the Philippine Embassy to Washington DC from 1967 to 1973. Thank you Mom and Dad for the wonderful life you gave us...
