Spout Run is a small Potomac River opposite the Three Sisters. With the exception of the adjacent parkway, Spout Run is surrounded predominantly by forests.

In the 1950s the second branch of Spout Run was culverted under Kirkwood Road.[1] The source for this branch was near Washington Boulevard. Originally the branch was called Breckin's Branch, named for the Reverend James Breckin. Later it become known as Ball's Branch, for the descendants of Moses Ball.
