Walks of explorations

Every Friday we go on "walks of Explorations" . We went here and enjoyed our walk tremendously. Walked past a working quarry on one of the trails and went over the bridge and walked by the water. They have boats for rent and covered picnic area. A nice bathroom and water fountains and drink machine Lots of historic signs that give the story of this port that I never knew existed. A nice way to learn history!

For $16, you can rent a kayak for a whole day and explore the Anacostia River. We paddled downstream to the arboretum, then explored Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens. It was very peaceful and felt like a vacation. We saw herons and egrets and geese and ducks...and turtles. Other people had rented pedal boats and were fishing. A very nice park...in a place most people wouldn't think to look.

This sweet gem of a park is tucked away in Bladensburg, MD, near Northeast D.C. For families with young children, this small park offers a playground to occupy kids while parents enjoy a view of the tidal waters of the Northeast Branch. For families or anyone else who enjoys biking or a long walk, the park offers an entrance to an extensive bike-trail system heading both North and South. In season, canoes and kayacks can be rented here and Naturalist-led pontoon boat rides are another engaging option. In addition, a nature center offers some events here and on some summer evenings bands perform.
