Fort Dupont Park is located in Southeast Washington, DC., east of the Anacostia River. It is not near Dupont Circle.
The Park is bounded by Minnesota Avenue to the west; Ely Place and Ridge Roads to the north; Alabama Avenue to the east; and Massachusetts Avenue to the south. The main driving entrances to the park are Fort Davis Drive and Ridge Road; Fort Davis Drive and Massachusetts Avenue; and Randle Circle and Fort Dupont Drive.
Washington, D.C.'s Fort Circle Park Hiker-Biker Trail links some of the District's dozens of Civil War era forts (now national parks) that were built to defend the city from attack by the southern Rebels. The trail runs for 7 miles through a heavily forested greenbelt between Fort Mahan in the north and Fort Stanton in the south.
