Montrose Park

Within the bustle of busy Georgetown, there exists a quiet 27-acres of shade trees, walking paths, and tennis courts, a perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon. Rope-making kingpin Robert Parrott originally owned the land in the 19th century, and welcomed local residents to enjoy picnics. After several years of disrepair following his death, Sarah Louisa Rittenhouse convinced Congress to purchase the land and officially convert it into a public park. Pick up some homemade ice cream from local shops nearby, and enjoy an extended walk along the Rock Creek trail that connects Montrose and the Dumbarton Oaks Park. Kids love the large playground and racing through the boxwood maze.
