Paddle and Play at Boathouse Park

Boathouse Park in the Capitol Riverfront is the place to be this summer for fun on the water and in the park. Launch your own kayak, or rent one of theirs for some great sightseeing from the Anacostia River.

Paddle past D.C.’s historic Navy Yard, U.S. Capitol, USS Barry, or Fort McNear. You can even hear the roar of the ballpark as you approach Nationals Stadium. Boathouse Park also offers guided 90-minute twilight tours for a unique look at the Anacostia River’s historic views from the comfort of a kayak. If you need to brush up on your skills, kayaking orientation is available.

If you're more of a landlubber, stay on dry land at nearby Yards Park and enjoy the beautiful green space, or relax at a concert. Consider purchasing a season pass to enjoy a 50% discount on rentals and activities.
