Anacostia River Walk Trail Opens!

Governor Mayor O'Malley, DC Mayor Vincent Gray and other President Obama White House Officials will celebrate the Anacostia River Walk Trail today in Bladensburg, Maryland.

When completed, the full Anacostia River Water Trail will cover up to 16 miles of cycling, walking, canoeing and wildlife. 
The Trail will encircle both sides of the Anacostia River. Photo from http://www.asla.org 
This event is a monumental and a major indicator that Federal and local governments are committed to improving the Anacostia River. But it can't stop here, the Anacostia River still needs a comprehensive clean up effort to make it swimmable and fishable.

Check out the all possibilities for the Anacostia River designed by the American Society of Landscape Architects. http://www.asla.org/awards/2004/04winners/entry617.html
