WASHINGTON, DC - The National Mall and Memorial Parks are home to 100+ historic structures, iconic monuments and memorials covering 1,004 acres of parkland. The parks are filled with tens of thousands of trees, shrubs, and plants including the world famous Japanese cherry trees. The open space and parklands form the perfect gathering spot for groups. Whether picnicking, jogging, throwing frisbees, golfing, fishing, biking or playing sports on the 43 ball fields, the parks offer an opportunity to learn more about our nation's history.

This picture was taken from the National World War II Memorial looking toward the 555-foot, marble Washington Monument. The grassy area surrounding the Monument is just one of the popular gathering spots.
