There's a public boat ramp and fishing pier, playground and B&O Railroad caboose. You can rent canoes, kayaks and rowboats on the weekends now through October. Canoeing and kayaking lessons are available as well. The hiker/biker bridge takes you directly to the Anacostia Tributary Trail System.
Free 45 minute pontoon boat tours, led by a park naturalist are offered Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays at 12 noon and Saturdays & Sundays at 5pm. No advance reservations required, just sign up when you arrive at the park. (You can count on another post about the Bladensburg Waterfront Park as soon as we have time to check out one of these awesome-sounding tours!)
If you've never stopped at this park before, this weekend is the perfect time! They are hosting a free open house this Saturday, May 30, from 9am until 3pm. There will be free canoeing demonstrations from 9-11:30am and 12:30-3pm and free fishing demonstrations from 9-11:30am. All ages welcome and all necessary materials will be provided.
