The NPS shared the potential designs at a public meeting at Southwest Neighborhood Library last night. Your feedback will be used to revise these concepts as part of the ongoing planning study for the park.

Buzzard Point Park is a roughly 3.5-acre waterfront park uniquely situated along the north bank of Anacostia River just east of the confluence with the Potomac River. Once an isolated area, the park is now primed to serve a neighborhood undergoing a major transformation. In March of 2016, the National Park Service initiated a study to determine the future uses of the park. Based on community input, concept plans were developed to activate the riverfront and provide seamless connections to the surrounding neighborhoods and planned Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. By enhancing the river’s edge and removing obstacles, residents and visitors can connect with the river. Buzzard Point Park will be transformed into a distinguishable park along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail that provides the surrounding community with enhanced public access to the waterfront.
