While Away a Sunny Spring Day at Stanton Park
Spanning four full acres, Stanton Park (formerly known as Stanton Square) is one of Capitol Hill’s more expansive public parks. It’s also a historic location, marked as “No. 5” on Pierre L’Enfant’s 1791 plans for the city. When you visit, you can stroll along on one of the shaded paths, relax on a bench to admire the park’s floral displays, or contemplate the history evoked by the park’s larger-than-life statue of revolutionary war hero General Nathanael Greene. Have little ones to amuse? No worries: on the western side of the park you’ll find a children’s playground area, which park goers say is clean and well maintained.
Whether you’re looking to enjoy a serene and quiet walk through the gardens, want to get your heart pumping with some exercise, or are hoping to add a new playground to your family’s regular rotation, you’ll find that Stanton Park is worth a visit.
