Walking along the river in winter was terrific. It was cold but very pleasant and well worth doing. There weren't many people there which made it peaceful and nice.

I love to cycle or run at East Potomac Park. There are plenty of people there so it is safe. Now if you want to go on a picnic, I may not suggest this for you. Many locals fish here and there are remnants of fishing all around. Also, if there has been a lot of rain in the few days prior you will most likely get some trash that washes up on to the point from the water.

So, Great to run, cycle, walk, or skate (you can even golf) not recommended for a picnic though.

This park, with its great views, water front, open spaces, golf course and generous parking, seating and tables should be a shining star of the district. Instead, it is trash strewn and inaccessible. The walking path is in such disrepair as to be treacherous; people don't even use it--they walk in the street! I saw plenty of park employees--taking naps in their trucks. Shameful.

very beautiful and artistic cherry trees all over the park. there were also all sorts of other plants and flowers. A very good place to walk around, click photos, relax.

I would like to see the park get a facelift and more activities for the kids. I also need to have a safer walking trail. I have not been able to walk on the side walk, it is not even and has unsafe cracks on the ground. and the street is not safe, road has to be shared with bikers and vehicles and sidewalk is shared with bikers.
