Meridian Hill (Malcolm X) Park

Meridian Hill Park, also referred to as Malcolm X Park, is a rare, classically-designed open space within one of Washington’s most diverse communities, Adams Morgan. The parks history dates to 1819 when John Ported built a mansion on this prominent hill. In 1936, the park was officially opened and in 1994 the park was designated as a National Historic Landmark. While a formal garden, the park provides a variety of open lawn areas, fountains, sculpture, intimate seating areas, and a choice view of the Washington Monument. The designer of the planting plan was Ferruccio Vitale.
