Nestled among the Port Towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor and Cottage City, The Bladensburg Waterfront Park is located on the Anacostia River, one of the most historic waterways in America. The unique waterfront features a paved riverside walk, picnic pavilion, a public fishing pier, free boat ramp, community boat storage, playground, B&O railroad caboose, interpretive signage, and bicycle, canoe, kayak, paddle boat, and rowboat rentals.
The interpretive pontoon tours allow visitors to explore this surprisingly scenic river. The park also offers educational environmental and social studies programs. Enjoy special events in the park such as The A-May-Zing Animal Fest and The Annual Port Towns Day. The hiker/biker trail links this park directly to the Anacostia Tributary Trail System and the Anacostia River Trail.
