  • The Mary McLeod Bethune Memorial stands in Lincoln Park. Sculpted by Robert Berks & dedicated in 1974. The first memorial in DC to honor an African-American leader. Learn more in the C-SPAN video.
  • A park where a kid can be a kid, and a dog can be a dog. And full of history!
  • Go after 7 or so and ogle the dogs. Also the statue of Lincoln makes me v uncomfortable, what about you?
  • Yes, great place for dogs, but also a fixture amongst the hill families after school and on weekends. North playground for smaller kids and south for less small kids, not really for kids over 10yo.
  • What's up with the statue? Why does D.C. celebrate emancipation with a statue that celebrates 19th-century racism?
  • Don't forget to pick up some wine at P&C and flowers at Surroundings!
  • When you see the park police, leash your dog
  • This place so makes me want a dog.
  • Great place to let the dogs loose :-)
  • Avoid the dog doodoo.

  • I love the occasional concert and movie they have in Lincoln Park. Navy band plays every year!
  • Running, relaxing
  • The only tip is to enjoy yourself... especially if with the kids on the playground.
  • I walk through this park often on the way home. It's more for young children and animals.
  • great place to exercise
  • Great spot for running laps.
  • Leash your animals! They eat picnics!
