Poplar Point

The area known as Poplar Point is a large portion of Anacostia Park that currently houses the headquarters of the National Park Service’s National Capital Parks-East and the US Park Police.

Poplar Point features a stretch of the Anacosita RiverWalk Trail and is also the location of the annual Anacostia River Festival produced by the 11th Street Bridge Park.

Poplar Point is one of the remediation project sites along the Anacostia River and the District is currently working with the National Park Service on investigations and planning for remediation.

Poplar Point is slated to be transferred to the District of Columbia from the National Park Service, although the transfer has not yet taken place.
