Rock Creek Park is truly a gem in our nation’s capital. It offers visitors opportunity to reflect and soothe their spirits through the beauty of nature. Fresh air, majestic trees, wild animals, the ebb and flow of Rock Creek, and thousands of years of human history emanate the delicate aura of the forest. We invite you to Find Yourself in Rock Creek Park and help celebrate our 125th Anniversary.
Rock Creek Park, along with several partner organizations, are celebrating the park’s 125th Anniversary. Special events and activities are planned to commemorate the Quasquicentennial (125th anniversary) of Rock Creek Park – 1890-2015.
Whether you are a local park visitor, a national park traveler or a remote explorer, Rock Creek Park hopes the 125th Anniversary will inspire you to connect with and protect Rock Creek Park to ensure the park remains relevant to America for the next 125 years.
