It's a darn nifty green space right by the Anacostia River and has about 1 billion small ponds full of lilies and lotus and similar aquatic plants. Quite pretty place and a bit unique.
Along the trail spur that goes from the Park to the River we saw this yellow-billed cuckoo and got a pretty nice look at it as it was feeding in the trees by the trail. I like cuckoos, and the fun fact of the day is that they are in the same family as the roadrunner! Oh yeah, can you guess the name of the family? How about Cuculidae...a rare case of the Latin being pretty easy to remember.
