Beautiful place to hang around for a while. Many sculptures all around the garden. Located right next to the National Gallery of Art.

A lot of interesting sculptures...location is a little interesting as well with placement a bit sporadic. But, overall worth checking out.

Located near National Gallery of Art, this sculpture garden with ice rink is a nice space to relax and enjoy watching sculptures in an outdoor setting. The sculpture collections are not extensive. But it would be a nice garden to visit before entering National Gallery...More

Want to take a break from the museums and enjoy some lovely artwork outside? Adjacent to the National Art Gallery, facing the Mall, is a relatively small sculpture garden/park, which, in addition to showcasing a collection of modern art, currently features an ice skating rink....More

This outdoor offshoot of the National Gallery of Art features a small but diverse selection of open-air installations and makes for a nice stroll on a sunny day. The biggest name represented here is probably Roy Lichtenstein, but my favourite piece is Roxy Paine's "Graft".

We strolled through here between museums. Even though temperatures were frigid it was still delightful. The whimsical sculptures are worth taking a few minutes to delight in. The silver tree was a particularly interesting one.

We have a huge sculpture garden in Minneapolis so I was a little surprised that this was quite small, but overall it had a very nice variety of art. I did very much enjoy my visit here!

The sculpture garden is surrounded by lush trees and has a large pool and fountain in the middle. It was a refreshing break on a warm day in DC. The sculptures are scattered around the grounds, and the trees, shrubs, and flowers provide a nice...More

The garden is wheelchair accessible. The paths are fairly smooth, and should not be an issue. If I recall correctly, the cafe on the west side of the garden requires a different entrance for wheelchairs.
