Red and Blue South Lawn Fountain

Did you know that the President of the United States lives in a National Park?

The White House grounds and surrounding parkland are designated as a National Park and maintained by the U.S. National Park Service. That's why you'll often see uniformed park rangers milling with Secret Service agents throughout the White House and Ellipse areas.

It is also the reason why the landscaping is so beautiful around the White House. Each season, the gardens and plants are refreshed with colorful plants like these flowers surrounding the South Lawn fountain. The red flowers are a perfect contrast to the bright blue water of the fountain.
