Capitol Grounds

The current grounds of the Capitol were planned by noted American landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, famous for designing many well-known urban parks, including Central Park in New York and Mount Royal Park in Montreal.

Capitole’s anecdotes:
• There are 365 steps leading up to the West Front of the Capitol Building, each representing a day in the year.
• There’s no skyscraper in Washington, the Capitole being the highest structure, except for the Obelisk of the Washington Monument.

This one’s for you Chris ;-p)
