  • We are in town for the Army 10-miler staying at the Americana Hotel. We discovered the park by accident after my husband was taking a training run. He felt safe running laps around the area in the ear...  read more »

  • Here you walk a concrete boardwalk next to a busy railroad track, athletic field, and airport. There is little tree cover, but excellent views of the Capitol and the airport. Arguably one of the best views of the Washington monument because it is far enough to appreciate but close enough to rise up in the distance on the walk. Airport distance is perfect for take offs and landings without excessive noise. As for fields, there are probably enough for a major soccer tournament. With only a few apartments and one office building close by, this is not a place to come for a short, shaded walk without sunscreen. But for those looking to add a mile or two to their jog, it is a great stop to add to a Crystal City trip.
  • My 2 year old loves it. Gorgeous park with lots of facilities. Good playgrounds for most age levels and s really cool mist playground area to keep cool. I love the promenade where you can watch planes, trains, and get a view of Crystal City that makes it look fairly cosmopolitan. Also a good view of the Washington monument. Great at sunset.
  • An amazing park with good view DCA Airport and next to small lakes.
  • Neat little area for a jog. No shade, very hot in the summer. Used to be a toxic dump. Now it's a few soccer fields. Watch the 4th fireworks, planes at Reagan, VRE, and birds at the sanctuary all in one place.
  • I like this park a lot. There isn't a lot of shade, because it is new and the trees haven't grown yet. My daughter loves to come here because you get to watch planes and trains. There are train tracks right by the park and depending on which way the winds is blowing you get to see the planes take off/land at Reagan the flight path for landing is right over the park.
