The National Park Service is rethinking Buzzard Point Park. BPP is a small park, about half the size of a block and is located on the SE corner of V and First, SW on the banks of the Anacostia River. It had a marina until recently, but NPS has closed that.
The purpose of the plan for Buzzard Point Park is to link landscapes along the waterfront to provide a continuous public open space system, develop the banks of the Anacostia River as an enjoyable and unique urban park with a mix of active and passive recreational opportunities, ensure that Anacostia Park continues to develop as a regional recreational resource, emphasizing the park's special riverside, ecological, and scenic qualities and character and to help to launch a new identity for the Anacostia through a collaborative approach to park planning rooted in community engagement and partnership building.
The project overview handout and suggested images show a lot of bike trails, bike lanes and bike parking, and also makes notes of the plans for the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. But nothing is hardcoded yet. Below is what the DC Office of planning recently showed for the area
The first public meeting on the Buzzard Point Development Concept Site Plan is tonight. This begins the stakeholder input phase. A draft plan is scheduled for late fall or early winter and the final plan is to be completed in May.
You can also give input now through a google form, ranking 45 photos of similar parks on a scale of 1 to 5. If nothing else you can play the game "Name that park."
