Restrictions in Anacostia Park during Nationals Baseball games
Washington, D.C. – The National Park Service (NPS) and the United States Park
Police (USPP) announce enforcement of the existing parking policy within Anacostia
Park during Washington Nationals baseball games and other special events to
be held at the new Nationals’ stadium.
The NPS and USPP remind those seeking parking for events at the new Nationals’
stadium that parking within Anacostia Park is open to park users only. Parking
on turf is illegal within Anacostia Park. Park users are asked to be aware
that increased vehicular traffic is anticipated and to make plans accordingly.
The new stadium is located one-half mile from and on the opposite side of
the Anacostia River from Anacostia Park.
The NPS and USPP encourage Nationals’ stadium goers to use public transportation
to get to and from the new stadium. The Navy Yard station on Metro’s Green
Line is the closest Metro station to the Nationals’ stadium. Metro trip
planning tools are available by visiting www.wmata.com/nationals.
