Lyndon Baines Johnson
Memorial Grove on the Potomac

 


The Memorial is located in Lady Bird Johnson Park, a Potomac River island in Washington, D.C. The grove consists of two parts. The first area, commemorative in nature, is a granite monolith surrounded by a serpentine pattern of walks and trails. The second area is a grass meadow and provides a tranquil refuge for reflection and rejuvenation of the spirit. The trails are shaded by a grove of hundreds of white pine and dogwood trees, and framed by azaleas and rhododendron.

Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove is an ideal location for picnics and gatherings. The Memorial has large open spaces, beautiful views of the Washington D.C. monuments and plenty of tables. Easy access to the 18-mile Mt. Vernon Trail makes the grove a popular staging area for bicyclist and in-line skaters.
