Fabulous location to bike, run, walk or just plane and people watch. I live in Southwest DC and am able to love it Spring, Summer, and Fall - not so much winter....😜

My son had a rugby match at the tip of the peninsula at hains point. What a great green space in Washington, D.C. So many bikers, walkers, families, cookouts. Boats going up and down the potomac while rugby going on. They even have a nice playground with restroom facilities Definitely a nice place to bike or walk on a Saturday... More

Great view of the river and nice place for a spring walk when the trees are in bloom. Go early to avoid crowds expecially on the weekends.

The only reasons to go to Hains Point are to golf (if you have lots of money), admire the view of National Airport, and run during races (Marine Corps Marathon, Cherry Blossom 10-miler, Jingle Bell Dash, etc.). Jogging on your own is a pain because you're dodging traffic. This place needs to be overhauled or turned into some giant memorial.

As you drive along Hains Point for the next few years you'll watch the DC waterfront change as the revitalization construction takes off. Some things are already different: Hogate's Restaurant (aka H2O) is gone and a new professional tennis court has taken its place. You'll notice that the number of boats at the Gangplank Marina has shrunk. and, hopefully, this... More

OK, first of all I have to thank Park Police for having constant coverage out there for safety. Cannot thank them enough! it is clean, there are bathrooms, water fountains, some road markings to judge distance, certified 3.45 loop, and a pool, even though you have to pay and it gets a bit warm and dirty by the end of...

If you would like to avoid some of the crowds around the Tidal Basin during the spring-time Cherry Blossom event, head out to Hains Point and enjoy the cherry trees blooming on this peninsula. There are still many folks taking into the cherry blossom sights on Hains Point but there are not as many as around the Tidal Basin. You... More

My friend and I golfed at Hains Point - for a public course the price was right and the course was in pretty good shape. The rental clubs left a little to be desired. If you are eatting at the turn save lots of time by buying a cold sandwhich.
