This is Washington DC’s Franklin Square. Nestled between 14th and 13th Street and K and I Streets in NW, its one of the largest, if not the largest park in downtown.
With huge old-growth trees, plenty of grass and shade, and multiple benches, its a great escape from urban life without leaving the city. I walk through this park in the mornings this week, and I love it.
Today I noticed that the fountain in the middle of the park is full of water again, so soon we should expect a spray of blue to go with our sprawl of green.
Yet another respite I’ll miss with the bye bye to 901 15th Street.
