Stanton Park

Located in the Capitol Hill area of Washington, D.C., Stanton Park is one of the four major parks in the Capitol Hill Parks unit. 

Stanton Park was part of Pierre L'Enfant's original 1791 plan for Washington, D.C., though he called it "No. 5." After the Civil War, the park was named for President Lincoln's Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton.

I spotted several rodents in the bushes next to the playground in Stanton Park. This was during the day, and children were playing right next to them. I saw them while my 1 year old was running over to get her ball from those same bushes. Luckily I stopped her. This is definitely a health and safety issue to have rats playing so close to children.
