Miles of waterfront and hiking trails - Acres of parkland, playgrounds, and picnic areas

Welcome to our charming waterfront community, nestled on the banks of the Potomac River and Mattawoman Creek. Only minutes from downtown Washington DC, yet seemingly far removed from life's often chaotic pace.

  • Ideal for fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. 
  • Biking and hiking on the Indian Head Rail Trail. This multi-use trail provides walkers, runners and cyclists a unique natural outdoor experience.
  • Festivals and a variety of community activities
  • Arts & Entertainment:  Center for the Arts - Black Box Theater
