Meridian Hill Park
Feel the beat of a local tradition at Meridian Hill Park on Sundays between 3 and 9 p.m. and hear the park’s drum circle. The drum circle has been a fixture in the park for more than 40 years that brings people together from all different backgrounds to hear drum beats and watch African dancing. For a hands-on experience, bring your own drum to join in. Meridian Hill Park is located in northwest Washington, D.C., and is bordered by 16th, Euclid, 15th, and W Streets. Meridian Hill Park was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1994, as "an outstanding accomplishment of early 20th-century Neoclassicist park design in the United States."
