In addition to the memorial core, the park includes some 156 reservations, circles, fountains and other open spaces, all of which serve as the nations front yard. Fords Theatre, The House where Lincoln died, Potomac Park, Hains Point and Pennsylvania Avenue NHS are also among the park managed areas that constitute National Mall & Memorial Parks.
