DIAMOND TEAGUE PARK
Until this park was built, there was no direct connection between the river and the city on the north shore of Anacostia River. The connection to the river is encouraged in both directions. From the land, the public is brought to the water’s edge. From the river, the construction of two new piers for various types of vessel, bring people to the neighborhood by boat. Once there, in addition to viewing the river from the bank, people are brought down to the floating environmental pier, just a few inches above the water.
