16th and Euclid Sts. NW, Washington, D.C. 20009, United States

The 12-acre urban park, part of the National Park Service family, exemplifies early 20th-century neoclassical design. Inspired by the formal gardens of Italy and the Renaissance, the landscape is otherworldly with a cascading terraced fountain; statues of such formidable figures as Dante, Joan of Arc, and Serenity; and a drum circle that often jams on Sundays.
