Come discover your Anacostia by joining AWS in the FREE Paddle Nights on the Anacostia Program this summer!  AWS provides the canoes, life jackets, paddles and safety lesson: everything you’ll need to have a great paddling experience.  Each event starts at 5:00 and runs until 7:30.  The events are first-come first-served, so come early for a better chance of getting out on the water.

Kenilworth Park is one of the best places to see a quieter and more serene Anacostia River.  Because this site right next door to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, the plant and wildlife here is abundant.  Experience for yourself the fun that can be had in this special spot on the Anacostia River.


At the Kenilworth Park site canoes will be launched from the river-bank off of Deane Ave.  The easiest way to find the launch-site is to follow Deane Ave NE past the recreation center.  At approximately 4000 Deane Ave (or slightly thereafter) AWS staff and the canoe trailers will be visible.

The Kenilworth Park site is accessible via car, bus, and is approximately a one-mile walk from the Cheverly Metro Station on the orange line.  Roadside parking is available on site.
