Anacostia River kayakers rejoice! Boating in DC’s Ballpark Boathouse is finally reopening starting Friday, July 16. The last time it was open, the Washington Nationals hadn’t even won the World Series yet.
Located in Diamond Teague Park just south of Nationals Park and The Yards, this boat house will rent kayaks on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 7 p.m. It appears the boathouse will be open through Labor Day.
Follow along all season long
My DC area kayak rental page is being updated as locations open up.

More cleanup dates will be added later this summer.
Life vests, kayaks outfitted with baskets and grabbers are provided by the foundation.
