According to the The National Park Service web page for the George Mason Memorial, it is located in West Potomac Park. I would argue, however, that the western boundary for East Potomac Park is Ohio Drive, and while the Jefferson Memorial is west of Ohio Drive, the George Mason Memorial is east of Ohio drive and therefore the George Mason Memorial is indeed in East Potomac Park. The DC Memorial website also indicates that the George Mason Memorial is in East Potomac park.
If, however, the western boundary of East Potomac Park is the George Mason Memorial Bridge, then the George Mason Memorial is in West Potomac Park.
