Fort Washington Marina is part of Piscataway Park and provides access to Piscataway Creek and the Potomac River. The marina offers boating opportunities in a natural setting and preserves the Mt. Vernon viewshed.
The National Park Service is preparing to advertise a new leasing opportunity for Fort Washington Marina, and wants to know what services and opportunities you’d like to see offered at the marina. Should we offer more non-motorized boating opportunities? What types of boat repair services are needed? Would you like to see food and drink services? Help the NPS answer these questions and more at an upcoming public workshop or e-mail us.
