Enjoy the outdoors today by cooling off in the canal of Yards Park.
Yards Park in DC is the perfect place to bring the whole family. The kid-friendly canal is the highlight of the park for families with young children: 11 inches of water make it the perfect wading area for toddlers. The canal flows into a lower area with waterfalls and fountains for kids to splash and play. Afterwards, enjoy the peace and beauty of the park by having a picnic on the hills surrounding the canal.
