  • Greenery, the waterway and kilometres of tracks for walking, running and more make this a great getaway only a couple of metro stops from the very heart of Washington.  more »
  • We always visit Rick creek when we are in DC. Beautiful and a good break away from the traffic of DC. Great for running and playgrounds too.  more »
  • We were walking along the creek it was very beautiful day. There were couple horseback riders and quite many people relaxing on christmas day. Some of the roads and parking lots are closed.  more »

  • One of the most beautiful parks in Washington, DC! Having driven and walked through here numerous times during my times in DC, I stand by my convictions that this place is worth a visit! Boasting a wide variety of activities (walking, hiking, jogging, driving, even equestrian sports) this park will satisfy most everybody's wants and desires. I encourage anyone visiting DC to drop by this park, it's worth it!
  • Best Example of Eastern Hardwood Forest in the USA. Rook creek runs year round. History and Nature. Lots of Good Trails Golf course, tennis courts, nature center, planetarium, civil war , log cabins Amphitheater. Lots of picnic places with grill and tables. Feels like country right in the Middle of Washington, DC.
  • Beautiful trail! Lots of cool little side trails and things to look at. The creek is beautiful. There are bathrooms along parts of the trail with areas to sit and BBQ.
  • Lots of trails to choose and use. Trails are both in wooded and residential areas. There is a stream which runs mostly near the trails. Trails vary from very steep hills and windy to flat and straight. It is a very popular area but not over crowded. I love it.
  • I love this place it is honestly one of, if not my favorite place in DC! The trails are great as is the creek. Plenary of great picnic areas, etc. I’m a bit worried about the park though it seems like a punch of Mountain Laurel is dying off.
