Watch Kids Sprint Around the Sprayground at Canal Park
Canal Park may only encompass three acres, but in the heart of DC, that’s actually a lot of square footage—especially to be dedicated solely to a green space. And there’s a lot packed into that three acres, as you’ll quickly realize when you visit Canal Park.
There’s almost always something going on here, even in the chilly winter months. The park’s sprayground transforms into an ice-skating rink when temperatures dip below freezing. During the summer, it cools down kiddos as they run from one sprinkler to the next. Canal Park also hosts outdoor movies throughout the summer, yoga classes and boot camp, and even the Freshfarm Capitol Riverfront Farmers Market. And since the entire park was designed to be entirely sustainable, you can feel good about the impact (or lack thereof) it’s having on your city.
