President's Park (White House)

President’s Park (White House)

Every president except George Washington has called the White House and its surrounding grounds his place of work, rest, and solitude. Recognizable the world around, the White House stands as a symbol of democracy. The White House and its park grounds serve not only as the seat of the executive branch of government of the United States of America, but also as an iconic place for civil discourse.

Located in the center of downtown Washington, D.C., President's Park includes the park land and gardens surrounding the White House. Amid the vibrant city life of our nation's capital, President's Park offers visitors, district residents, and the President of the United States restorative green space, awe-inspiring memorials, and the White House itself to contemplate as a symbol of the United States and democracy.
