Welcome! Check out our featured DC area business Maids in Black, DC Cleaning Services.

Favorite DC Park? That’s a question I’ve been asked in recent days.  I know, it’s a bit strange planning a visit to a park when there is snow on the ground as I’m writing this.  But we’re about to have a spate of warmer weather. Right?


Well, consider this a little hope for warm weather either way.  I thought you would enjoy an experience that reminds us of the little things that make the DC area special:  Malcolm X Park in Washington DC.

I’ve walked this park. Snoozed on the grass.  Planted trees with Habitat.  And enjoyed the Sunday drum sessions.  It’s one of my favorite things to do in DC.  Like a little magical secret garden hidden away on the outskirts of the city.  This is one of those spots that I almost wish I could keep tucked away to myself, but I figure you can keep a secret.

On Sundays during the summer, at around 3:00 pm in the afternoon, folks get together to participate in a drum circle and provide food for the homeless.  This has been a staple in the park since the 1950’s and ever so often professional drummers show up.

Here’s the spot, it’s best described with pictures.

Malcolm Park in Washington DC (Meridian Hill) is really a lovely park.  You can go read, meditate, dance to drum music like in the picture above, have a romantic picnic, practice yoga or just vibe with a few long lost friends.  Not only is the park lovely, but you’ll also catch some amazing views of the city.

It’s like the perfect mixture of nature and amazing architecture.  I really could go on and on about this place.  But I’ll force myself to stop here and just give you the address so you can check it out for yourself.
