    Bladensburg Waterfront Park, formerly known as Bladensburg Marina, is a park along the Anacostia River, nestled among the Port Towns of Bladensburg, Colmar Manor and Cottage City. The park features canoe, kayak, paddleboat, and bicycle/tricycle rentals, a public boat ramp, fishing pier, picnic pavilion, playground, a B & O Railroad caboose, community boathouse (storage facility) and historical displays. Interpretive pontoon river boat tours allow visitors to explore this surprisingly scenic river with the guidance of a naturalist. Canoeing and kayaking lessons are offered, as well as guided hikes and bikes rides, among many other interesting natural and historical programs. Special events include the annual Port Towns Day, Arts at the Waterfront concert series, various cultural festivals, and river clean-ups events. The hiker/biker bridge links this park directly to the Anacostia Tributary Trail System, and connects to Washington, D.C. via the new Anacostia River Trail.
