From www.dcist.com:

Bono is also remembered in this town at the confluence of 20th and O streets NW along New Hampshire Avenue, the site of Sonny Bono Memorial Park. One could walk past it regularly for years (as we did) without realizing that this triangular green space is something more than a well-tended traffic island a block south of Dupont Circle.

The park covers about 800 square feet, overlaid with Kentucky bluegrass, dotted with stone benches and accented by a seven-foot Japanese maple. The area is encircled (entriangled?) with juniper bushes and delimited by a low, wrought iron fence. At the entrance is a plaque one practically has to step on to get inside, reading: "IN MEMORY OF MY FRIEND SONNY BONO 1935-1998; ENTERTAINER; ENTREPRENEUR; STATESMAN; FRIEND."
