Photo of Georgetown Park

The Georgetown Waterfront Park encompasses 10 acres of the Georgetown waterfront below the Whitehurst Freeway. A coalition of federal agencies, local partners, and the National Park Foundation raised funds to complete the project, which features an interactive fountain, an arbor over the park, and stairs to the edge of the Potomac. The project took more than a three decades to complete.

The site was constructed in two phases. The first section was opened in 2008, featuring a bike trail, rain gardens, and an innovative labyrinth for exercise. The second section includes a fountain and dramatic steps that go down to the river's edge. The total cost of the project was more than $24 million.
