In a movie with Channing Tatum (lucky ladies and lads!) who plays a Capitol police officer rescuing his daughter and the president (Jamie Foxx, of course) from paramilitary invaders during a tour of the White House, you probably wouldn't visualize the filming field to be anywhere other than Washington. While part of the filming actually did occur in Washington, the summer of 2012 introduced residual work to be done at La Cité Du Cinéma in Montreal, Quebec. Apparently, the most significant battle with shooting White House Down was to convince the Parks Department to permit the filming of some stunt scenes in Parc Maisonneuve - one of the biggest parks in Montreal. The purpose of that production was to construct the President’s basketball court, which you could see possesses an abundance of concrete in the park, in addition to components of the White House gardens. Shots filmed there also incorporated vehicle chases on the grass!
