Outdoor Recreation

It’s not uncommon to see Washingtonians playing softball or kickball on the National Mall. In DC, outdoor recreation options abound, from the 800 miles of jogging and biking paths to kayaking on the Potomac River to making use of the Mall’s expansive green space.

2,000 acres of parkland make up Rock Creek Park, home to the National Zoo, a planetarium, outdoor concert venue and numerous trails.
From biking and boating to picnics and playgrounds, outdoor activities abound for all ages in DC.
Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, formerly the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, is set on 25 manicured acres which include a Japanese-style garden.
With more than 230,000 acres of parks, DC is a nature-lover’s paradise. Picnic in or retreat to one.
Lace up your own (or rented) skates & practice that triple axel.
