Whether you are coming for a special event or just to relax, the Yards Park has something for everyone! Built as a series of outdoor "rooms," the Yards Park features unique spaces including the 11" deep Canal for children to play in, the peaceful River Street Gardens with wooden chaise lounge chairs and the raised overlook with incredible river views.
Easily accessible by Metro (Navy Yard), Circulator, Bikeshare or off I-395, the Yards Park is also a part of the Riverwalk Trail System connecting the park via bridge to Diamond Teague Park, behind Nationals Ballpark.
