Beach Drive Block Party

On Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Rock Creek Park and Rock Creek Conservancy are hosting a block party for residents and neighbors to experience the brand new section of Beach Drive before anyone else. Meet at the Smithsonian's National Zoo entrance on Beach Drive (by Harvard Street NW).

Guests are invited to walk and run, as well as ride bicycles and other non-motorized vehicles, on the fully reconstructed roadway and the wider, smoother multi-use trail. Featured programs include a hike and a ranger-led bike tour, hands-on activities for kids, and information booths.
