Lovely garden, beautiful water features, gorgeous flowers. They have interesting statues, a play house, etc. Beautiful place to gather your thoughts and relax with lovely homes and old brownstones surrounding the park.

I waked through Washington Park and found it very pleasant. A cool breeze under the trees felt refreshing. Please note there are no water fountains or restrooms. I think the closest restrooms may be at City Hall which is located adjacent to the park. I...More

The tulip bulbs were dug up and sold (an annual event) last weekend. So the park is ready for summer planting and you missed the vent. Sorry. It's still a very nice park if the weather is good.
