Spirit of Justice Park is a park in Washington, D.C., in the United States. Bounded by C Street to the north, D Street to the south, Delaware Avenue Southwest to the east and New Jersey Avenue Southeast to the west, the park is located south of the United States Capitol[1] and is separated into two sections by South Capitol Street Southwest.

Spirit of Justice Park is a green roof on an underground parking garage built by the Architect of the Capitol to service the House Office Buildings.[2] A number of buildings were demolished to make way for the House parking garage, including the George Washington Inn (pictured).
