Waterfront park opens in Georgetown
Georgetown Waterfront Park has been unveiled to the public. The park has been decades in planning, and began construction in 2006. Now complete, it features a huge sprinkler-like fountain, and giant steps leading to the mouth of the Potomac. The new location offers a welcome respite from the city and traffic.
The park is part of a larger effort by the National Park Service to revitalize waterfront areas of the District.
