    The historic Saints Peter and Paul Church is a historic church just across the way with Gothic architecture. Within the park, you can also find plenty of benches and peaceful places to relax. 

    Good to know about Washington Square

    If you want to drive to Washington Square, be prepared to pay for street parking, as there isn't a free lot here. It's completely disability accessible and wheelchair friendly, as well as being family friendly. You should be fine to bring your dog along, but make sure it stays on-leash and clean up after your pet. 

    The park offers basic amenities including bathrooms for men and women. While there aren't food vendors within the park itself, restaurants line the perimeter, so you should be able to find any food you want.
