  • Such an expansive park plenty of room for flying a kite, bicycling or jogging. Free admission after 4pm. The historic fort is very picturesque. Just be careful around the old battery installations, you or your children can be easily injured climbing around these old war structures.
  • One of the few revolutionary war-era forts that survived the civil war! HUGE open fields and picnic/park area. Great for walks, picnics, team games, and -- of course -- history lovers! The size of the fort itself can only be appreciated fully when touring. It's huge. The view from the fort is also picturesque.
  • I visited Fort Washington Park on a lark the last week of April. The park charges $10 for entry starting the first week of May, so I got in for free. The park is well managed with great views of the Potomac and the Virginia side of the river. Lots to see, and plenty of information points to learn about the history of the fort. I especially enjoyed the nature trail that runs along the river, on the perimeter of the park. Lots of space for picnics and family get togethers.
  • Beautiful park with a lot of things for everyone. Lots of wildlife also and can go fishing or boating. Strongly advise wearing good walking shoes, having water, and snacks or something to eat. If you are into history, you can explore the fort and their is a park guide who can tell you the history of the fort.
  • Beautiful restored park. As an amateur lighthouse historian I encourage opening the interior of the light
