Description:
Lincoln Park is an urban park located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C. It was planned by Pierre Charles L'Enfant to be the point from which all distances in North America would be measured.

The park was originally used as a dump, and then as the site for Lincoln Hospital during the civil war. Walt Whitman visited the hospital patients at the site.

Situated one mile directly east of the United States Capitol, Lincoln Park is maintained by the National Park service. The park is bounded by 11th Street NE and SE on the west, 13th Street NE and SE on the east, East Capitol Street NE on the North, and East Capitol Street SE on the south. It is four blocks northeast of Eastern Market, Washington, D.C. It is also known as Lincoln Square.

The park features two important sculptures: the Emancipation Memorial, the first of several memorials in Washington honoring Abraham Lincoln, and the Mary McLeod Bethune Memorial. in Accessed August 14, 2008.
