A brand new pedestrian bridge that connects Diamond Teague Park and the Yards Park will open Tuesday, November 22, at 1:30pm.The new bridge, which is part of the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, creates a continuous one-mile riverwalk trail that is publicly accessible within the Capitol Riverfront and allows for easier access between the Yards Park and Nationals Park. Stadium-goers will be able to walk the trail all the way to the Grand Staircase/1st Base Gate, and water taxi customers will no longer have to walk up Tingey Street. Additionally, the new water taxi piers and public piers for canoes and kayaks have been completed.

 

Join city officials, Forest City Washington and local partners for a ribbon cutting to celebrate this new riverfront connection on November 22 at 1:30pm at the bridge.

    The attached River Walk Trail map is very difficult to understand. Is there anything simpler, that explains what is built and what is not built? Also, any plans for building the rest of the trail plan? What’s the schedule for that? Just curious. Cannot tell from the map.

    Definitely DC’s coolest bridge!
