The Equipment The big draw for children are the fountains. Be sure to wear water shoes to protect feet from the grated surface. Parents can sit on benches that sit opposite the fountain if they opt not to enjoy in water play. My child spent close to an hour running through the sprays. Be sure to pack a towel and change of clothes to enjoy the other features of the park. There is no shade, but ducking under the freeway provides a break from the heat. Benches are dotted along the park and there are grassy areas to rest on. After getting sprayed stroll along the walkways past the Potomac River. Further down the park is The Labyrinth maze. The National Park Service has a nice sign that explains on how to proceed through the labyrinth, although kids will just find it fun to follow the green cement maze. The Scene Georgetown Waterfront Park is located under the Whitehurst Freeway on Water Street in Georgetown. The park spans 10 acres and offers gorgeous views of the city. There is metered street parking, which tends to be limited on the weekends, but there is also a parking garage. The water feature is open seasonally and is free to enjoy. Extend your visit by dining or shopping in the bustling area of Georgetown. If you’re in need of a quick bite, there is a food truck right by the fountains. Age Recommendation All ages Restrooms Unfortunately, there are none available. However there is a movie theatre and eateries within walking distance.
