East v. West Potomac Park[edit]

I'm a resident of the area, and I'm almost certain it's located in West Potomac Park, not east. Can somebody prove me wrong? 96.231.81.21 (talk) 13:22, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Boundaries of East Potomac Park[edit]

According to the The National Park Service web page for the George Mason Memorial, it is located in West Potomac Park.[1] 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.[2] The DC Memorial website also indicates that the George Mason Memorial is in East Potomac park.[3]

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.

The Railroad Tracks[edit]

I found a document from the HABS or Historic American Building Survey, run by the National Park Service, from 1992, HABS NO. DC-692. The report states, on page one, that "The elevated railroad bridge forms the northern boundary between East and West Potomac parks[1] A map shows us that the George Mason Memorial is indeed in West Potomac Park.[2]
