Take a day off and enjoy this five-acre open space. Douglas Park comes equipped with a children's playground, nature trails, a relaxing gazebo, a stream and a picnic shelter.
The park was named after the nearby subdivision, Douglas Park. According to the Washington Post, upon acquisition of the land south of the subdivision of New Arlington, the Washington Development Company rededicated the subdivision as Douglass Park in honor of Frederick Douglass. Over time the second "s" was dropped.
