The park is a favorite with couples on first dates, families on an evening stroll and power players showing off their big yachts. Benches dot the way, where you can sit and watch the rowing teams out on the Potomac River. Alfresco restaurants cluster near the harbor at 31st St NW. They ring a terraced plaza filled with fountains (which become an ice rink in winter). The docks are also here for sightseeing boats that ply the Potomac to Alexandria, VA.

The park then curves along 10 riverside acres west to the Key Bridge. Kids splash in the fountains at Wisconsin Ave’s foot. At 33rd St there’s a labyrinth in the grass; walk the circles and see if you feel more connected to the universe.
