Kingman and Heritage Islands are natural parklands found on the Anacostia River in Northeast Washington, DC. There are over 50 acres of natural area to be explored on these two island habitats. Wooded trails, river views, and wetlands comprise much of the sights to be experienced when visiting the park. Trails in the park are open for walking, hiking, and bicycling.
Kingman and Heritage Islands Park provides over 1.5 miles of trails to be explored by visitors. Access to the Anacostia River, a tributary of the Potomac River, is available for canoe and kayak users looking to discover the flora and fauna of the tidal wetlands and riparian forests surrounding the park from a different perspective. In addition, several access points to the Anacostia along boardwalk bridges and the banks of the river are open for visitors to enjoy for fishing. Over 100 species of birds have been identified at the park including Bald Eagle, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, and osprey, making the park perfect for bird-watchers as well.
Kingman and Heritage Islands Park is managed by Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region in coordination with the District of Columbia Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.
