Date of Visit: March 27, 2012
The Francis Scott Key Memorial Park is located on the Georgetown end of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The park is on the site of the house he lived in as a lawyer in the early 1800s. The memorial area is rather flat, but there is a rather scary steepness down to the canal and waterfront right next to the crosswalk you must use to get to the park from Georgetown. The other side of the park is accessed directly from the Francis Scott Key Bridge.
Mik was not to into us stopping at the memorial, but only because it was cold and windy that day. After we got over there, though, he did want me to read some of the informational signs to him. I think the trees growing up the columns is pretty cool.
