Nice park with a big Fort
Dec 31, 2014 by: TonyTTA from NYC
This is a nice park right along the Potomac river. Really nice views. The Fort is a bit run down and some of it is a little dangerous. The Visitor's center wasn't much more than a table with some pamphlets and restrooms. I would not want to take small kids to the Fort or the visitors center; too many places to fall into.
Awesome historical place to visit!

During peak months it costs only $5 for a parking pass, which is good for 3 days, to enter the park. This is super cheap entertainment! (off season there is no charge at all for parking, so it is free!) We bring our 2 kids, ages 6 and 2 years old, and usually pack a picnic lunch. The kids love running around the old fort, visiting the small museum, running around the Potomac River and just burning some energy. This is a great place to fly a kite too, as it is almost always windy! Check out their website for activities. We showed up one day and got to see volunteers dressed up in full uniform, and they were giving out snacks!
Average Park above average view

I have been to this park at least weekly as I live in Fort Washington, we walk our dog there regularly. I always love the view of the Potomac River and never tire of that view. I have never taken the tour but imagine it to be nice. During the summer months people fish the river, and also enjoy the view.
Out of the Way but Worth the Trip

FORT WASHINGTON National Park was a great find! Both of the Park Rangers were friendly and informative. They took time to explain all of the local/area Park locations and reasons to make those stops as well. There is a lighthouse at the waterfront, the Fort itself is well maintained and there are plenty of information boards that explain the Fort's activities. It was a beautiful day when we visited so the view out over the River was gorgeous. Take a day trip and visit this Park, it is well worth your time!
Park to Walk in

Love this park to walk in, it is tucked away on the water. Quite, nice for just sitting or taking a walk.
