Anacostia Park - Washington DC
Anacostia Park
Anacostia Park, a unit of the National Park System, consists of 1200 acres along 5 miles of the Anacostia River shoreline from the Frederick Douglas Memorial Bridge north to the DC/MD line. This urban park, once the home of Nacotchtank Indians and later prosperous farmers, is now a multi-use recreational park with extensive shoreline access. It includes trails, boat launches, picnic areas, a swimming pool, a multi-use pavilion and Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. The Anacostia River is recognized as a significant, but somewhat ignored, Bay tributary in the Nation's capital. The park represents a large portion of that resource, providing extraordinary shoreline frontage.
Hours: Open :30 am to 5:30 pm every day of the year except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
Fees: There is no entrance fee.
