My wife and I visited the Promenade Classique while taking a guided tour of Old Town Alexandria. The Promenade Classique is a 14-ton, 30-foot-tall miniature Washington Monument. It is located at the northern edge of old town, along the waterfront running trail you might pass a small obelisk. Behind it stands a waterfall with what looks like ruins from an ancient sculpture, including huge eyes and lips spraying water. This unique little park is called Promenade Classique, and it stands as part of the TransPotomac Canal Center.
Though water has been cascading from its giant, neoclassical marble lips for more than four years, "Promenade Classique," the sculpture-and-water installation and formal park along the Potomac at the northern edge of Old Town Alexandria, is one of the area's least-known waterfront amenities.
