“Beautiful and scenic gardens”
The 50 bells of the Netherlands Carillon hang in an open steel tower, a symbol of Dutch regard for American aid during and after World War II. The carillon's peaceful setting, with its floral libraries and sculpted lions, is the perfect place to listen to the music of the bells. The grounds of the Netherlands Carillon offer sweeping views of Washington, DC. In temperate weather the grassy slope and large shade trees form a perfect picnic spot.
- The tower was under construction when I went so it was a real bummer!! Didn’t find the park to be anything magical... nice walking paths.. I did a mile loop. I was really looking forward to hearing the bells but maybe next time.
- Got a little confused driving their since I drove through a pentagon road but a sheriff said that’s how you get in, so don’t be worried like me!
