Washington Canal Park: From Splash Parks to Farmers’ Markets Near Capitol Yards


Washington Canal Park is a new public park located right on the site of the Washington Canal in the city’s picturesque Capitol Riverfront neighborhood. The park offers the best of both worlds, from lush green spaces to modern amenities. In the winter, the figure-eight Canal Park Ice Rink winds through the park and offers hours of cold weather fun for all ages. In the summer, the park opens a high-tech, interactive water fountain that kids love to splash around in to beat the heat. If all of that outdoor fun makes you hungry, there’s even a casual cafe that offers hot chocolate in the winter, fresh lunches al fresco in the summer, and brunch all weekend long.

Whether you want to lounge in the grass next to an interesting sculpture or visit a farmers' market this weekend, the park is a wonderful place to visit near Capitol Yards DC!
