The Yards Park – Waterfront perfection

The best parts of DC are those that make me feel like I’m are not in a concrete jungle. This gorgeous waterfront property provides all that I need for the perfect day in the sun.

Are you looking for a free weekday outdoor workout during the summer? Head to The Yards Park On Fridays during the summer, grab a blanket and your closest friends for an evening concert by the water. If you are out on a Saturday, stop for drinks at one of the waterfront restaurants, spend the day on the water stand up paddleboarding with Capital SUP, or jump in a kayak and discover the Anacostia River with Ballpark Boathouse.

If you are looking for something more family-friendly, there is a large canal basin that provides 11 inches of water to wade in along with a fountain play area that has adults envious. Take a stroll down the boardwalk and take in the views and sunshine. The drinks and eats along the water are not to be missed either. This area has it all and should definitely be added to your itinerary.
