The grassy place offers panoramic views of the Kennedy Center and the Key Bridge against the back-drop of the enormous skyline. Visitors to the park can spend their time biking or walking around the park or simply gazing at the spectacular views.

St Paul's was first established in 1866 near Washington Circle and remained there until the end of World War II. The parish is noted for being the first Anglican Church in the United States to hold a midnight mass in 1870. It is also the the home of the first vested choir in Washington and the site of the first choral service in the city.

This gorgeous church is a city landmark, tucked away among lovely townhouses in Georgetown and just down the street from Georgetown University. A plaque on the front gate proclaims the church as John F. Kennedy's place of worship during his short tenure as president. The white-columned interior is elegant but not ostentatious, filled with light streaming through enormous stained-glass murals. For either group worship or solitary reflection, the church is a wonderful sanctuary from Georgetown's busy streets.
