The National Park Service invites you to help shape the future of Buzzard Point Park. The NPS and a multidisciplinary planning and design firm will work with District residents, neighbors and interested parties to explore options for the park's future, and the effort will kick off with public meetings this spring.

"The National Park Service is committed to providing fun, safe access to the Anacostia River for District residents and visitors alike," Superintendent Gopaul Noojibail said. "We welcome all voices and will listen closely to everyone who is interested in sharing their ideas for how Buzzard Point Park can benefit the community."

Buzzard Point Park is part of Anacostia Park in Southwest D.C., near where the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers meet.

Previously at Buzzard Point, a concessioner operated a marina, which closed on February 29, 2016. The marina is locked and secured for public safety and to safeguard property. The NPS is working with slip holders and is facilitating three additional days on which they can remove their property without penalty: Saturday, March 5; Wednesday, March 9; and Saturday, March 12, 2016.
