A stop along the walking tour of the mall. We almost did not notice it. Not huge or standing out. I wouldnt search specifically for this but a decent stop

This is a pretty area to sit down while visiting the national mall. I wouldn't call it a must see attraction for a short visit.

We were following our map and it kept saying it was surrounded by a garden and water. We stumbled upon it. Actually the area was kind of dirty and almost forgotten. Glad we found it finally
