“The Georgetown Waterfront Park is a national park completed in Washington, DC, in the fall of 2011. Part of the Georgetown Historic District, the park stretches along the banks of the Potomac River from 31st Street, NW, to the Key Bridge. As a result of many years of advocacy and fundraising, the site features several notable design elements. Now complete, the park links 225 miles (362 km) of parkland along the Potomac River stretching from Cumberland, Maryland, to Mount Vernon, Virginia. The park was designed to complement the natural curve of the river passively. The park features gently sloping grass hills and shade trees. The landscape blends with mixed-use paved pathways. The promenade provides panoramic views of Theodore Roosevelt Island, the Key Bridge, and the Kennedy Center. Several distinctive design elements include an interactive fountain, river stairs, and scenic overlooks. This part of the park, known as the Wisconsin Avenue Plaza, serves as a gateway to the Potomac River. ”

Landmark
“I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am. ”

“This is perfect destination for a solo (or social) walk on a nice day. And be sure to take a good look at the STATUE here. Controversial today... it's important to know it was paid for (almost) entirely by donations from former slaves. And the man you see here rising from his broken shackles: his name was Archer Alexander. His story is an incredible one. If we get a chance to talk during your stay, ask me about the extraordinary friendship between Archer and my great-great-great grandfather... and how it led to Archer being the model for this statue.”

“The W&OD trail is an easy trail that you can ride sportive and fast or relaxed with a family. It goes through pretty nature and charming citycenters where you can stop and have a coffee. Starting in Shirlington today I went through Arlington, Falls Church, Fairfax, Vienna to visit a friend in Reston. The way back took me just 90 minutes going between 16 and 18 miles per hour.”
