On August 31, 1918, Congress passed legislation to designate specific land along the Anacostia River in the nation’s capital as Anacostia Park. 100 years later, Anacostia Park is a thriving national park that encompasses more than 1,200 acres and includes cherished places such as Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, River Terrace Park, Langston Golf Course and the Anacostia Park Skating Pavilion.
