"Lafayette Park" Lafayette Park Tip by Tom_Fields
Lafayette Park, Washington D.C.: 12 reviews and 43 photos
The Marquis de Lafayette came from France to America to serve in the War of Independence. He helped to bring France into the war, and to secure American freedom. This park is named for him. Located directly across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, it has statues of Lafayette, General Andrew Jackson, and other heroes of the war.
It's long been a gathering place for protestors. One of them has been camped out there for over 25 years (you have to give her credit for perseverance).
Directions: On the north side of the White House, bounded by Pennsylvania Avenue and H Street.
