Winter at Anacostia Park

Are you fighting the winter blues? If so, get out to Anacostia Park this winter to warm your body and your soul. All of your fitness goals can be met at the park. The sunny Anacostia River Trail is a wonderful place to exercise by walking, jogging or bicycling. Basketball and tennis courts and open fields are all around. Although skate rentals do not occur during the winter, the skating pavilion is a great place to skate if you have your own skates. You can also try your luck at fishing along the banks of the river.

If you just need a place to escape and feed the soul, Anacostia Park has lovely scenic views of the river for all to enjoy. The crowds of summer are long gone, and the air is clean and crisp. Come enjoy the Anacostia Park this winter!
