Urban Landscapes on the Anacostia River + Washington Channel

Some of the most renowned landscape architects in the country are participating in the transformation. Take a walk with Jack Sullivan, FASLA, and experience the excitement of a river coming to life with waterfront parks, plazas, marinas, restaurants, bars and more. Maps, tour outline, and photographs of tour highlights will be provided.
