East Potomac Park Tours

Located just south of the Jefferson Memorial, East Potomac Park is a man-made island between the Potomac River and the Washington Channel. It’s also a popular but somewhat overlooked slice of nature that locals consider a best-kept secret. 
 
Roads and paved pathways, including the popular riverside trail, draw cyclists, runners and pedestrians to the park for an easy escape from the bustling city. And there are other recreation opportunities as ewll, including an 18-hole and a nine-hole golf course, mini golf and a public aquatic center, all found within the sprawling green space. 
 
In the spring, two types of Japanese cherry trees bloom, converting the park into an incredibly picturesque sea of pink and white flowers. The National Cherry Blossom Festival coincides with the Yoshino cherries bloom that happens about two weeks before the Kanzan cherries open.

Practical Info

There is no Washington Metro station adjacent to the park, but both the L’Enfant Plaza and Smithsonian stations leave passengers within easy walking distance. There is street parking and easy access to the park on Ohio Drive, which follows the waterfront and encircles the entire park.
