The Diner en Blanc organizers had little doubt that the beautiful Yards Park would be a great venue for their event. The Capitol Riverfront BID, which manages the space, welcomes quality public programs that contribute to the maintenance of the space.
The Yards site blends old and new construction, as well as a large lawn, water feature and wading area, boardwalk and terraces
A prominent bridge of white metal rings is the dominant architectural feature onsite.
The Yards acomodate all sorts of programs, which drive usage and encourage neighbors to visit and people watch. Here, a Yoga class with views of the Anacostia river.
The wading pool is a favorite with the crowds.
The terraces are the ideal spot for people watching as passerbies make their way along the Anacostia
