This mushroom signpost, a gift from The Netherland-America Foundation, is located by Broad Branch Road and Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park. Two sides point to the U.S. Park Police, Maryland State Line, National Zoo, C&O Canal Towpath, and The Netherlands Embassy; the other two sides point to the Carter Barron Theater, Nature Center, and Equitation Field.

"ANWB mushroom signs have been placed at two sites in the United States. The first ANWB-mushroom on American soil was unveiled by His Excellency the Ambassador of the Netherlands, Adriaan Jacobovitz de Szeged, on April 10, 1996, at Pierce Mill in Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC, near the Royal Netherlands Embassy. The photograph shows the ambassador dedicating the sign as a representative from the National Park Service and Paul Meijer of the Metropolitan Trail Coalition look on. Mr. Meijer, a native of the Netherlands, made the arrangements for the ANWB mushroom signposts that have been installed in the United States."
