West Potomac Park Washington Reviews
Host of the most Popular Landmark attractions in Washington Jul 10, 2012
The West Potomac Park is National Park in Washington administered under the US National Park Service. It is located adjacent to the National Mall and easily accessible. I believe we walked the length of it as we toured the many outdoor monuments and attractions; it stretches to the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, from the Lincoln Memorial and the grounds of the Washington Monument.
The park hosts most of the outdoor attractions/ monuments/ statutes, including the Korean War Veterans Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Franklin Roosevelt Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the surrounding land on the shore of the Tidal Basin. In the nineteenth century, an artificial inlet of the Potomac River was created and it links the Potomac with the northern end of the Washington Channel.
