Meridian Hill Park information
Lonely Planet review
This is an incredible bit of green space that gets short shrift in the list of America's great urban parks. What makes the park special is the way it emphasizes its distinctive geography. Lying on the fall line between the upland Piedmont Plateau and flat Atlantic Coastal Plain, the grounds are terraced like a hanging garden replete with waterfalls, sandstone terraces and assorted embellishments that feel almost Tuscan. Many locals still call this Malcolm X Park.
