Metro: Closest Metrorail stations are Minnesota Avenue or Potomac Avenue on the orange line and Benning Road on the blue line. You can also take the U2, V7, V8 or V9 bus, I believe the V8 is the only one that runs on weekends though, see metro trip-planner to view options. You can also take the Circulator bus, which is just $1 or 50 cents with a metro transfer if you have a SmarTrip card. The closest stop is at Alabama Avenue & 30thStreet SE on the Potomac Avenue Metro to Skyland route. There is also a Capital Bike Share station near each metro station, and you can drop the bikes off at the Randle Circle entrance of the Park. Note: If you are driving please use the following address for reference: 3600 F St, SE.
