Completed in 2011, the park traces the eastern bank of the Potomac River from the Key Bridge to 31st Street, NW. The urban open space is a link in 225 miles of parkland that stretches along the river from Cumberland, Maryland to Mount Vernon in Virginia. The park features a promenade with panoramic views of the Kennedy Center, the Key Bridge and Roosevelt Island. It also has sloping grass hills, shade trees and a mixed-use pathway as well as an interactive fountain, scenic overlooks and stairs to the river. Part of the park, Wisconsin Avenue Plaza, is a gateway to the Potomac River.
