Boating in DC welcomes you to the Capitol Riverfront along the Anacostia River in Southeast DC. The Anacostia has lots to offer with so many cool things to explore. Enjoy a paddle past DC’s historic Navy Yard. Check out sites like the U.S. Capitol, USS Barry, and Fort McNair. You can even listen to the home run roar of Nationals Stadium or watch a Friday evening concert at Yards Park right from the water!
Nearby Yards Park is a beautiful, relaxing spot with lots of activities and there are always new things to do. You can enjoy a post-paddle picnic and ice cream, or just kick back and enjoy the sun. We recommend that you check out everything the park has to offer. Visit Yards Park and plan your paddle around the fun events that might be going on!
With sightseeing, concerts, kayaking and more, a day spent at Ballpark Boathouse lets you see the best of the Capitol Riverfront.
