Montrose Park

Montrose Park is an eleven acre park in Georgetown at R and 31st Streets,NW,which is part of Rock Creek Park.  Sarah Louise Rittenhouse,who lived in Georgetown, gave the money to acquire the land to assure that it remained open land, rather than be developed.

Montrose Park,the adjacent Dumbarton Oak Park, and Rock Creek Park are units of the National Park Service.IMG_1522 (1).jpgIMG_1522.jpg
