River Park has a backyard of D.C. staples, walking distance to the National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, the U.S. Capitol, and the Tidal Basin which is the home of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

River Park’s Southwest location is convenient by car, foot, bike, and Metro. We are close to all the major highways — 395, 295, Route 1, and the George Washington Memorial Parkway, with easy access to Georgetown and Capitol Hill. Roughly one block away, you will find the Waterfront Metro Station, Safeway, Capital Bikeshare, new Southwest Library, Enterprise Car Rental, CVS, and the Southwest DC Community Farmers Market (open from spring to fall).
