A reader writes: “With the warmer months upon us, I wondering if there were any choice spots in the neighborhood to lay out, bask in the sun and read a good book?”
If you don’t own a hammock (see below), I’d first recommend Grant Circle if you don’t mind the traffic noise. But another neat feature of Petworth is that there are a number of triangle parks. I like this one at the intersection of Rock Creek Church and 5th which overlooks the Old Soldier’s Home. So what do you guys recommend for a good place to lay out in Petworth and/or nearby neighborhoods?
