Very pleasant area with a few restaurants and a nice walking track along The Potomac River. The Water Taxi from The Wharf stops here (takes 45 mins)

An incredibly beautiful area to see the Potomac as well as strolling and people watching. We arrived quite early and all the waterfront restaurants were not open yet. There is a Starbucks nearby. However we were able to witness the rowers practicing this morning which was a plus!

I would love to live here! The airplanes flying out of Ronald Reagan Airport can be seen and heard so that might need getting used to if I lived here!

This is a 10 acre grassy park along the water. If one needs a sense of calmness and peace, come here!

From the waterfront, it is easy to take one of the side streets up to M street where many of the shops and restaurants are located. We were fortunate to take a street which crosses the C & O canal!

A nice way for a walk on the way to Georgetown from DC. There are some nice restaurants along this area as well. The weather was really lovely in April.

Great time in the waterfront, great picnic area, excellent route to walk and enjoy warmer weather. The beautiful Potomac River is great to enjoy, plenty of restaurant to dine in.

Close to the shops and restaurants of Georgetown, this park offered a peaceful escape. The paths were easy to walk and the view is not to be missed. Beautiful plants and water fountains. If it hadn’t been raining, we would have spent more time there. Great photo opportunities!

I’ve lived here for 50 years and don’t recall ever coming to this particular park of Georgetown in my adult life… it’s beautiful, especially on a gorgeous, sunny day! Lots of park are to lay out a blanket and have picnics! Plenty of great eateries to dine waterside! It’s very dog friendly! Nice, long path to walk or ride along which eventually hooks up to the C&O tow path.

Definitely something I’m looking forward to doing again, SOON!

We mapped to Georgetown Waterfront Park & Google Maps took us to the highway running above the park. Several turns, curves & lights later we made it to where we planned to go. Best accessed by public transportation we learned! Waterfront area wirh restaurants and a great environment in the heart of the city.

As I continued my walk from Gerogetown along the banks of the Potomac River, I saw this Park. There are restaurants and shops located near it. The views across it are beautiful, Kennedy Center, neighborhood of Northern Virginia, etc.

I plan to visit this attraction again in the Spring/Summertime. During my visit, the weather turned more cloudy and windier so it definitely deserves a second visit here!
