Rock Creek Park in Washington D.C.

Green Space in Washington D.C.


The first time I drove my in-laws through Rock Creek Park, they couldn't believe they were still in Washington D.C. My father-in-law, who owned a cherry orchard in Oregon, was awestruck. Both had heard of Rock Creek Park, but were surprised at the beauty & density  of the forest north of Georgetown.  

Teddy Roosevelt skinny dipped in Rock Creek Park

Roosevelt enjoyed rock climbing in the park and was known to take White House visitors on hikes through the forest.

The park offers hikers, runners and bicyclists miles of green space to exercise and stay within DC city limits.  Traveling outside of the city, Rock Creek Park connects to Mt. Vernon Trail in Virginia and the Capital Crescent and Matthew Henson Trails in Maryland.

In fact, you can ride your bike from Maryland through Washington D.C. and down to Mt. Vernon on bike trails or bike friendly roadways.

Rock Creek Park is America's oldest natural urban national park

Along the creek, there are picnic areas and beautiful stone houses to rent for special events. If you love Civil War History, be sure to take one of the guided tours offered by Park Rangers. 

Are there mountain lions in Rock Creek Park

Through the years, people say they have seen  mountain lions in Rock Creek Park. However the National Park Service  says no to the mountain lion rumors. There are coyotes, foxes, deer and other small creatures living in Rock Creek Park


Visiting Washington D.C. 

Take a walk or drive in Rock Creek Park. Most locals spend time in the park and people who live in NW Washington DC have the park in their backyard. It's one of the suprising perks of living in the Washington DC Metropolitan area
