Summer Comes to Franklin Square

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.

    Layfayette Park is bigger. (not to mention the Ellipse and the National Mall).

    That’s Lafayette Park, I mean.

    Looking at Google Maps, Lafayette is larger, but the Mall & Ellipse aren’t “downtown”.
