Rose Park is tucked away on the quiet side streets of Georgetown, between 26th and 27th, M and P Streets. The park features a small bike and walking trail connecting M Street to P Street. A baseball diamond, frequented by ball players and dogs alike, sits next to a small playground with a jungle gym, slides and shady benches. Rose Park also offers three tennis courts, a basketball court, another small playground and open grassy space. Community events like summer concerts and farmers markets also call Rose Park home.
