*Due to construction and new development in the area, at this time we cannot permit any races (walks or runs) to come through Yards park. Please check back in November for further updates.
From receptions to festivals to corporate picnics to fundraising events, the Yards Park is a perfect place to host your next event! The unique riverfront park presents a variety of spaces for rent including the River Street Gardens and the expansive boardwalk.
The first step in reserving a portion of the Yards Park is to fill out the appropriate application on the "Event Proposal" page and submit to Lacy Wilhoit at Lacy@capitolriverfront.org. View the park map and locations page to select the area in the park you would like to reserve. If you are unsure on the location, feel free to give us a call at 202.465.7080 or set up a time to meet at the park. After we have received the application, we will provide you a proposed rental rate.
If you are inquiring about a small event or child’s birthday party in which no vendors are being utilized and no alcohol is being served, it is not necessary to fill out an application. You will have access to areas around the canal, waterfall and surrounding green space on a first come, first serve basis. We will no longer be posting birthday parties on our events calendar because there is no reservation process. Please check the Events Calendar to see if there is a private event being held by a larger group so you can make your plans accordingly. If you have any questions in regards to the new policy, please contact Bonnie Wright at email@example.com or (202) 465-7093.
