Where Water and Wind Dance

In an age old dance wind, water, and land combine here.  Sparkling in the sun on a breezy day, this natural area of Anacostia Park has origins in a 1926 act of Congress to preserve the forests, water quality, and recreation value of the waterways of Washington, DC.  The park reflects the policies that affect rivers and wetlands.  Come, join the dance.
