Is there anything cuter than a mini park? Some of these parks are tended by the city while others were created by residents. Thank you all for submitting your favorites. We compiled the most popular into a guide below!
1. Woodley Park Metro Garden:
This 50 sq/ft green space sits in the middle of Connecticut Avenue NW and was created by an anonymous neighborhood resident. It’s just enough room for a table, two chairs, and a few plants.
2. Biltmore Garden in Adams Morgan:
This teeny flower garden built in a traffic triangle is packed with blooms all summer-long, and is tended by a group of neighbors.
3. Sonny Bono Park in Dupont:

4. The Magic Tree Box on R Street:
The smallest of all the parks, this 20 sq/ft garden is contained in a tree box on R Street NW. The homeowner created a little fairy circus world for all who pass by.
5. French Street Park in Shaw:
The largest of the parks on this list, this Shaw oasis has picnic tables and tulips in spring.
6. Columbia Heights Green:
This secret garden is tucked behind 11th Street NW and serves as a community garden and recreation space. It’s the perfect spot to get away with a book or go attend a gathering.
A few more honorable mentions go to Acorn Park in Silver Spring, Barbie Pond, and the Triangle Park in Kalorama.
