King Street Garden Park

Before heading back to Washington after lunch at Vermilion, I spent some time reading in the King Street Garden Park, which is a fascinating work of public art.   The park is a 15,000 square-foot triangular plot of land near the Old Town Alexandria metro station.  In winter, it’s just a brick-paved plaza with a metal framework, but when the weather warms up, it turns into a big vine-covered tent.

There are a few tables and chairs and benches scattered about, and it’s always quiet and never crowded.  It’s a good place to escape the hectic city.
