As we were walking through Washington looking for a coffee shop we stumbled upon Lincoln Park. As with any big park there’s not much there really apart from a statue of Lincoln. Not particularly interesting unless you’re with children who need a run around in...More

This small the but charming park is the centerpiece of this Capitol Hill community. It’s a place where dogs play, families have children’s birthdays, and runners enjoy their daily stretch.

More of a dog park as it has a large dog area. My young girls were not impressed with the playground area. But overall it's a very safe and friendly park. Sit and read or walk/ run it's nice.

Seems like it is a popular place for dog owners to take their four legged friends here. The park isn't very large, however it is still nice and peaceful with only limited amounts of traffic on the roads surrounding the park.

There's tons of grass and big shade trees. It's perfect for running around with your dog or the kids or both. It would be just like any other large park except there are a couple of giant statues in it.

We stayed in a vacation rental directly across the street from Lincoln Park while we were in DC. I loved seeing how active the park was each day - parents pushing strollers, people tossing a ball, playing fetch with their dogs, biking around the perimeter,...More
