Fort Dupont Park

A "park for all seasons" describes the 376 rolling wooded acres that make up one of the largest parks in all of Washington. Picnics, nature walks, Civil War programs, gardening, environmental education, music, skating, sports, and youth programs are among the varied seasonal activities at this spacious area east of the Anacostia River.

Among the traces of old roadways, oaks, beech, maples, and pipe cover the hillsides. squirrels and rabbits find homes along with the night foragers - raccoons and opossums. The pink lady-slipper orchid blooms in quiet shade.

Fort Dupont Park is named for the Civil War earthwork fort located within the park. It is one of the forts that are collectively known as the "Fort Circle Parks", or the Civil War Defenses of Washington.
