Congress originally set aside the parkway as part of a "comprehensive park, parkway, and playground system of the National Capital." Here are just a few of the many ways that the parkway lives up to that mission.
Canoeing or Kayaking
Moderate hikes with some steep slopes and rock scrambles are available on the Potomac Heritage Trail and in Turkey Run Park.
Playing Field or Court Games
Walking or Running
Wildflowers put on a spectacular show in Turkey Run Park in spring and early summer.
