The Georgetown Waterfront Park is a national park completed in Washington, DC in the fall of 2011. Part of the Georgetown Historic District, the park stretches along the banks of the Potomac River from 31st Street, NW to the Key Bridge. The result of many years of advocacy and fundraising, the site features several notable design elements. Now complete, the park links 225 miles (362 km) of parkland along the Potomac River stretching from Cumberland, Maryland to Mount Vernon, Virginia. The park was designed to passively complement the natural curve of the river.

  • We go there often with my kids in the summer. They like the water fall lots of restaurants it’s clean. If you want to take a boat ride there are plenty of options.
  • Enjoyable for walks along the river bank, or for a good dinner at one of the very good restaurants around. Whether you want to sit tranquilly reading your book or working on a paper, or just hang out with a couple of friends, this place will meet your needs.
