Lady Byrd Johnson Park

Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac

Built with materials dredged from the Potomac River in 1916, this island was named for the former first lady in 1968 to salute her efforts to beautify the United States. Though technically a part of the District, the park sits at the Virginia end of the Memorial Bridge.  In spring, one million daffodils bloom throughout the park and along the highway leading to the park. At the south end of the park, a 15-acre grove of trees stands in honor of President Johnson. A large block of Texas pink granite (monolith) serves as the focal point of the memorial.
