The Capitol Reflecting Pool reflects both the Capitol and the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial and is located in the United States Capitol Complex. The Capitol Reflecting Pool is located on the National Mall as well as many other sites. The pool was created to enhance the appearance and beauty of the Capitol Complex.

The pool was originally envisioned by Pierre L'Enfant and is located in between the Botanic Garden and U.S. Capitol. It is a great area to sit by and relax during the summer days.
