Hey #CapRiv 👋 We know for a lot of you, it’s not summer without a splash in the #CanalPark and The Yards Park water features ⛲️ but, in accordance with the mayor’s DC Reopening Plan, the water features, unfortunately, must stay off ❌ until Phase 4 (i.e. when a vaccine is found 💉). We thank you for your continued patience, compliance, and understanding as we move to safely reopen #CanalParkDC 💙

#CanalPark keeps it green year-round by collecting storm water 🌧 runoff in its 80,000 gallon underground cisterns 💧 that is then reused to support 95% of the park’s irrigation, fountain water and is even used to build the winter ice rink! 🌈#themoreyouknow

#TBT to a time when Bryce was playing for the best team in baseball, you could eat a slice of @wiseguypizza 🍕 in #CanalPark before a game, and this picture would make you think “take me out to the ballgame” instead of “hey, that’s decent social distancing!” 😆⚾️❤️
Since we can’t officially welcome baseball back to #CapRiv for another season with the @nationals today, let’s take a trip down memory lane instead! 🌈 Tell us some of your favorite #Nats memories in the comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️ (ours is “walking through the beautiful #CanalParkDC on the way to @nationalspark” but, we get it if that’s not yours 😉😆)

Today’s #CanalPark view is brought to you by our hardworking Parks Director, Tony 🌸 Tony and the Capitol Riverfront Clean Team are still in the neighborhood every day, working to keep it clean and running - give them a wave (from at least 6ft. away 😉) if you see them on your next walkabout 💙
.
A reminder to our #CapRiv community: you may continue to walk through @canalparkdc and @yardsparkdc while maintaining appropriate social distance from others but, the parks are closed for all other recreational activities. Please do not congregate or spend extended periods of time in the parks space until the #DC stay-at-home order is lifted. We can’t wait to welcome you back when it’s safe but, until then #SatyHomeDC 🌳🏠

Happy #NationalPuppyDay #CapRiv! 🐶
We might be stuck inside right now but, that’s no reason to not see some adorable pups in the park! 🐾 Our sister park, @yardsparkdc is hosting their annual #MuttMadness competition on their story right now! Head over to their page to vote on some very good boys (and girls) like @missgoldenbailey here 💛

Celebrating the #FirstDayOfSpring from a *safe social distance* 💚🌳👒

While we have you here, a few reminders from the #CapRiv Parks Team:

- Canal Park DC and The Yards Park are OPEN and will continue to be serviced by the Capitol Riverfront Clean Team as long as their safety and health are not compromised 💙
- During this time, it’s more important than ever to respect the parks space as community assets for the #CapRiv neighborhood (that means cleaning up after yourselves and your dogs AND keeping your pups on-leash 🐶)
- When visiting the parks, please remember to practice social distancing and remain at least six-feet apart from your neighbors 🌳👫______👫🌳

*****************************************
We will all get through this together and, in the meantime:

-Follow along with Capitol Riverfront to receive updates on how to best support the #CapRiv restaurants and community 💙
-Head over to @yardsparkdc on Instagram to virtually play along with #MuttMadness (Monday, March 23 - Friday, March 27) 🐾
- If you are out for a stroll, keep tagging @canalparkdc and #CapRiv in your #CanalParkDC photos 📸 Our goal is to provide as many calm park pictures as possible during this time of uncertainty but we need YOUR help keeping up with content 😊

When is the water scrim (water feature in the middle section) going to be fixed? Its been out of action for half the summer already
Did I miss the workout schedule for the season? Last year it was well developed and scheduled?
Is the rink open today or does it only open on Friday please ?
For second week on the row instructor didn't show up. 😡
