DirectionsLink to Map: to Park Main Page: to Rock Creek Park’s directions webpage: parking options:1)


Park in the vicinity of the Alaska Avenue and 16th Street intersection, and proceed to site #9 on foot down Sherrill drive (closed on weekends).

2) You can park at the site itself, but getting there is a bit inconvenient—believe me.


Roads closed on Sundays are in yellow below.


If taking public transportation, the E2 and E3 buses (Military Road-Crosstown Line,

can be boarded at Fort Totten and Friendship Heights Metro stations and stop a few blocks away from the picnic site.If using WMATA’s Trip Planner, Google Maps, Mapquest, or a similar web-based mapping service, use the following as your destination address:  16th St NW at Alaska Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001
