The Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove is a small park located next to the George Washington Memorial Parkway and near Washington National Airport. The grove location was chosen because President Johnson and his wife used to admire the views of Washington, D.C., from this area. The memorial was authorized in 1973 and opened in 1974 only one year after the death of the President.
Most of the memorial area is kept in a natural park-like setting including a well-manicured grass field with some benches. There also are several walking paths that trace the periphery of the property. The main part of the memorial is a basic granite monument to President Johnson set in a circular stone pattern. Views of Washington, D.C., and in particular of the Washington Monument are good.
This memorial is quite simple by the standards of presidential tributes in Washington, D.C. It can be seen in a few minutes and can be approached either from George Washington Memorial Parkway or from the Pentagon facility which is right next door. A small walking bridge connects to the memorial grove from the Pentagon area. From a sightseeing perspective, there is practically nothing to see or do here. The granite memorial to President Johnson is simple, unremarkable and unmemorable. The views of famous memorials across the Potomac River are a plus, but these can be seen from the parkway itself. The memorial grove seems well-suited for a picnic or a place to unwind but the traffic noise from the parkway and the constant roar of airplane engines are too bothersome to really enjoy it. If you are on your way to National Airport and have a few extra minutes prior to a flight, this memorial could work as a place for a short stroll, but your trip and memories won’t be diminished if you can’t squeeze it in.
