HOW TO GET TO
LADY BIRD JOHNSON PARK
Lady Bird Johnson Park is a small park on an island in the Potomac River. The entrance to Lady Bird Johnson Park can only be reached from the southbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway (drive up to the roundabout at Memorial Bridge and come back around driving south if needed). From the southbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway, follow the sign to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove, which will lead you to turn right into the large parking lot for the Columbia Island Marina. You can park at the marina (free parking) and walk over to our barbeque location following the signs.
From I 395 south (the 14th Street Bridge), take exit 10C and merge onto the George Washington Memorial Parkway north. Exit left toward US 50 west/Memorial Bridge/Arlington Cemetery. Exit Memorial Circle onto VA 27 south (Washington Boulevard). Exit left and merge onto the George Washington Memorial Parkway south. Follow the sign to the Columbia Island Marina to turn right to enter the parking lot.
On Foot or by Bicycle
If you’re feeling a little adventurous you can walk to the park from the Arlington Cemetery Metro stop via the Mount Vernon Trail (1.5-miles) or you can bike to the park also via the Mount Vernon Trail. The Mount Vernon Trail passes through the park. Follow signs on the trail to pass underneath the parkway at the Humpback Bridge and into the marina parking lot.
