Came to D.C. In January for a week long training at the Navy Yard. Stayed at the Hampton Inn which is directly across fromThe Yards. Very impressed with all the construction going on , and the fact there are several restaurants to choose from in the vicinity. Of course the Navy Yard metro is also close by so that makes... 更多

The park was designed to host summer events and for relaxation for the Commercial Navy Yard visitors and locals. It is... 更多
I recently made my first visit to Yards park with my 11, 3 and 3 year old sons. Yards park is a big green space right on the Anacostia River in SE DC. I found parking in a big lot right across the street (quite inexpensive - I paid $6 for 3 hours and paid at a kiosk before leaving... 更多
Sure, Georgetown is great. But it's hard to get to, and those crowds? Yards Park is relatively calm and serene compared to DC's more popular waterfront areas. Friday nights are the best nights to go, there's almost something going on in the warmer months. Grab ice cream from Jubilee, a sandwich from Cornercopia or a bowl from Takorean and picnic... 更多

Most of the restaurant selections are pricey... 更多
This latest edition to the revitalization of the DC waterfront is a winner. It opens a large stretch of the old Navy Yard to the public. The highlight is the broad boardwalk and attractive footbridges along the Anacostia River with views downriver to the Potomac. There are steps, benches and grass for relaxing. A wide, open area is available for... 更多
Not a bad spot for a picnic by the water and it is nice that there are some stores and restaurants there (even if they have zero personality).
What a gorgeous place! Come here at night and see the entire place lit up :D I was fortunate enough to come for the giant inflated bunny exhibition and was really impressed with the work and park. There was also a live DJ at the event.
If you want to eat some good food and have a chill atmosphere to go along try the Yards Park area. Good view, nice vibe and depending on when you go they have music and other cool events.
