The Taft Memorial Bridge that separates Woodley Park from Kalorama Heights has a lion statue on each corner.

The original sculptures were by Roland Hinton Perry. Unfortunately, the original designs became lost under layers of repairs. Replacement lions were sculpted by Reinaldo of Professional Restoration.

The new lions were installed in 2000.
