The Wharf Ice Rink: what do users think?


Austin Graff: There are a handful of ice rinks in Washington, D.C.- this one, Canal Park, Georgetown Waterfront and National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden. We've been to all three and here's how this one ranks: 1) Views: Compared to the others, this one offers beautiful views of the waterfront and the Washington Monument peeking out from the buildings. The Sculpture Garden's rink has a stunning view of the National Archives, but this one is even more stunning, especially with the holiday decorations. 2) Price: This one is $15-$18 per person for admission and skate rentals. $6 for a "helper" for kids. (Sculpture Garden is $14-$15, Georgetown is $16-$17 and Canal Park is $15-$16 per person.) 3) Amenities: There are public restrooms onsite and plenty of dining options nearby, including a s'more trailer with a fire pit. For hot chocolate, several options exist, but we enjoyed the thick hot chocolate from Praline Bakery near the Canopy.

Ghenet L: Very expensive. 60$ for 1 adult and 3 kids plus skate rentals. Rink is small. Nice ambiance though. Beautiful place for photos. I like that you're not given only a few hours to skate, you get to stay as long as you want.

James Walker: Open for skating from Wednesday through Sunday, admission fee required, with a discount offered for military and seniors. A special day and time is reserved for the sport of Curling. Located on Wharf Street Southwest between the Anthem and the Transit Pier.

Matthew Henry: Probably one of the most beautiful rinks in DC. You can hear the geese and birds, see the water and smell the food. Very enjoyable place.

Matthew Rusch: It was super fun for me and my family. The cost was about the same as other ice rinks and you can skate for a long time if you want to. It had a great atmosphere right on the water and the staff was super helpful. It is a little smaller than a regulation ice rink for hocky, but not to bad.

Jenny Koss: I went with friends on Dec. 8th and it was fantastic! The staff are quite nice, and since it's a new rink, not many people are aware of it (yet!) The price is great, $10 for all you can skate, (+ $6 if you're renting skates) and the rink is right on the water. I can't wait to return!

Corey Hinkle: Really enjoyed their free curling lesson, the woman leading was awesome, even after folks accidently hit her with a rock. The ice was decently maintained for our event and folks around we're friendly.

Korren Golden: Fun little ice rink. Watch out if it gets windy though.They're always doing fun events here too.

Stefano Negri: Pretty bad treatment for my 3 kids last year - good to see it is open for review now so that I can say this They made us pay in full for 15 minutes after having told us we would have a full hour. Felt cheated and there was not even an apology, let alone a reimbursement. Not going back.

M: It was a beautiful little rink with string lights hanging overhead and water surrounding it. I give 3 stars because it was a little pricey. $38 for 2 people.

Canal Park Outdoor Ice Skating & Splash Park: what do users think?


Austin Graff: Skating by a pizzeria, a sushi place and a gelato shop is a dream. Located in Navy Yard's Canal Park, this ice skating rink is open November through February every single day, including Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Here's what you need to know: 1) Price: Online reservations are required. Admission is $10-$11 and skate rentals are $5. The price seems to be on par or a little cheaper than other D.C. ice skating rinks. 2) Size: It's a little smaller than others, but they make good use of the space. There's one larger open area and smaller passage ways on either end that go by sculptures and Christmas trees and a menorah. We went on a December Saturday evening and although it was full, it didn't seem crowded. 3) Amenities: It's nice to be right next to Wiseguy Pizza, Khin Sushi and Altani Gelato. It makes for an easy evening of fun with kids- skating, dinner and dessert. The poke bowl at Khin's is surprisingly delicious. Inside the area with the restaurants are public restrooms. Being inside Canal Park, there's open grass and a green roof with a lit-up cube as art. 4) Parking: You can usually find street parking, but nearby is Lot F where parking costs $1 an hour- a steal in an expensive city like D.C. 5) Neighborhood: It's in Navy Yard near the Anacostia River and close to lots of restaurants, bars and a Whole Foods and Harris Teeter. Yards Park is close by with lots to do and see.

E P: Great place to skate, parking was easy when we went (Sunday late afternoon), but I can see how it could be an issue in busier times. Rink is well maintained, and you can rent skates if you need. Great area for coffee or restaurants around.
Response: EP, thank you for your review and rating. Parking is always available in the vicinity of the rink. These ratings mean a lot to the staff to see returns on their efforts. Thanks for your visit skating with us. Best, Lance

Kelsey Elle: This place seems like it would be fun but it’s actually extremely dangerous. It’s too crowded for how often they cut the ice and as a result the ice is extremely rough and in poor condition. What makes it even more dangerous is that the rental skate blades are not adequately sharpened. Skating on rough ice with dull skates is a recipe for disaster even for an experienced skater. I have skated my entire life and was a competitive figure skater and even I felt unsafe skating here. We saw many people get injured during the hour that we were there, including a member of our group. If you have your own skates it would probably be okay, but on the whole I was very troubled by what I encountered here, and the disregard for safety.

John Griffis: Very Fun! Skates in fairly good condition for a rental. Ice maintained pretty good for an outdoor rink in 50° weather too. All in all it was a fun time.

Danial Gebreili: The ice-skating experience at this location is fantastic. The skate rentals are pretty decent and properly maintained. Overall, the staff are friendly, prices are reasonable, and it is not crowded making for a fun experience with friends, couples, or family.

A R: Really fun! We went on a Monday evening and it was fairly quiet with only about a dozen other people there. There is a lot of space to skate and a fun little passage to skate through too! Highly recommend

Sean Shechtman: Cool rink shaped like a figure 8. Also good pizza, hot chocolate and coffee. Great place for kids because it has outdoor rink with indoor food/beverage when you are cold.

Joshua Otero: Took some of my wife's family from colombia to ice skate for the first time and they loved it. Plus it has a nice open feel.

Nadine De williaams: Fun spot. Not crowded. Had a cafeteria to grab some snacks. 2 hours for $15 including the skates.

Timothy Albright: The rink staff are very approachable and were willing to assist my child in his first time skating, last year. The shape of the rink allows for more enjoyable experience, compared to a conventional ice rink. The pizza place is a warm place to sit when the Zamboni is on the ice, but there are many other good food locations nearby. Since the change in management, my family has purchased season passes yearly. Great winter spot!

National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden Ice Rink: what do users think?


Yumi Nelson: Definitely worth a visit! The rink is pretty small, but we didn't have to wait to start skating on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Also, they seem to run out of lockers so keep that in mind. Probably the most scenic option for skating around DC, surrounded by the sculpture garden and Smithsonian's etc. Another plus - the beer etc sold at the sculpture garden pavilion is well below average cost of a drink in DC!

CB: Cute rink but bad customer service and inaccurate hours of operation. The rink “sells out” of skates very quickly and stops renting out skates (when stocked) at around 7PM. Unless you plan to go as soon they open or you decide to wait an unknown period of time, you likely will not be able to enter. I have tried to go on two different occasions within a few days, hours before closing, and was refused entry/rental both times. We ran into several other people while leaving who experienced the same. In previous years, this rink was great, but they are not operating their best since the pandemic began. Would advise going to Georgetown rink instead

M Munoz: The only time I was able to skate at this rink was when I went around opening time, at 11AM. That’s the only reason I am rating one star. Any other time at night, I was turned away on multiple occasions. They always say that they’re sold out even if I’m there hours before their listed times. Misleading and unprofessional, especially since skaters were leaving as I had requested for a rental AND the person directly in front of me was able to get skates. There’s no structure or consistency in this rink’s operation. Save yourself the trip and go elsewhere!

Kate Bellows: I went here a few weeks ago, and we had so much fun! Very busy, so if you can go in the middle of the day during the weekday, that’s for the best. And pack light, because it’s hard to avoid not getting a locker unless you just want to leave your stuff out.

Fort Dupont Ice Arena: what do users think?


Darian Smith: What family had a great time in this ice skating rink. The price of the rental skates are very affordable. The skating rink is a nice size plenty of space to sit in the bleachers and watch people skate or sit down and change your shoes you will have a great time there

Austin Graff: Fort Dupont Ice Arena is Washington's best kept secret. It's the only indoor ice skating rink in the city of Washington, D.C. It's not Metro accessible, explaining why many people don't know about it, but there is a large free parking lot next door as well as a Capital Bikeshare dock. The space itself is clearly built in a different era, but they have maintained it well for not having a lot of funding. A non-profit runs the arena and it is mainly used for non-profit programming for youth who ice skate. However, they keep the ice rink open every day from 9am-4pm and rentals are affordable ($5 for adults and $4 for seniors and youth). If you're looking for a fun, family activity in DC, check the Ice Arena out. It's such a fun thing to do!

Maggie Bowman: Cool rink. Great views of the capital building and Washington monument from the front door and parking area. I've was good. Stands were warm.

Mary O'Brien: Fort Dupont is a wonderful place to skate! It is an extremely welcoming environment and there are good, clean rentals available. Overall, I highly recommend.

I SLAY ALL DAY TRAVEL The Solo Traveler: Perfect place! It’s hidden gem nestled away in Washington, D.C.

NUALA OLEARY: Needs updating. Across a parking lit from a beautiful baseball facility sponsored by the Washington Nationals. It would be wonderful to have an updated rink sponsored by the Washington Capitals.

Jennifer Jay: If you grew up with rinks built in the 80s/early 90s this place will feel like coming home. Yes it’s dated but that’s part of the charm and they are breaking ground on a new rink soon so enjoy it while you can. They offer free learn to skate to DC residents in 2nd thru 12th grade, it’s a rink you can feel good about spending your money at. The giant windows and natural light make this rink even more special, fabulous skating under the sunset glow.

Greg Pryzby: great resource. if you live in DC there are free classes on Saturday.

John H.: I love it. It's not the newest, but it's clearly loved. Well-priced and friendly, this is a great little spot, especially when compared to some of the fancy new things. I grew up playing hockey in a small town and the rink felt like going home. Plus, it has windows down one whole side, so it doesn't feel like you're trapped in a metal shipping crate

Ms. DC: Now this Ice Skating Rink brings back memories I remember my friends and I.would hook school and hang out here. We.use to like to watch the hockey players while school were in session. Until they caught on we were hooking school then they stopped letting us in or we would meet up there and go to the movies.

MedStar Capitals Iceplex: what do users think?


matthew doherty: Great venue! They host Caps practice and numerous other ice related sports like synchronized, figure, and recreational skating. Parking is reasonable in the garage at just a buck for 3 hours. As of this post there's construction taking place in the complex but doesn't negatively impede the experience. Should be even better when completed.

Andrea Cox: Been skating at Kettler for years. Med Star takes over and decreases the public skate time by a 1/3 while doubling the price. They also make you jump through hoops by creating an online portal and signing your life away just to come skate for an hour on Saturday night. RIDICULOUS!!!

Anthony Alatis: Great to be able to watch practice. Leaving the parking lot took 10 minutes with only one attendant in 1 of the 6 payment lanes.

Jacques Bertrand: Very nice locker rooms, good ice as well. Only complaint is that the game usually have to be curfewed. I think they should have reserved spot for referees, so they will be more enticed to come.

Vaibhav Gupta: Great place to ice-skate. The staff is really friendly. And if lucky, you can catch the caps practicing here. We had a great time here.

Todd Berman: Aside from the 8 stories of winding parking garage - there is much to like at Kettler. Skate rentals, food concession and of course, the Stanley Cup Champions home practice ice. Come for a relaxing skate session or to see the Caps practice. Convenient to Metro and parking is a bargain!

Bill Rizzo: Two rinks, for hockey on Friday nights. The Arlington Rink is better for spectators as you can sit in "box-like" seats and watch the game. Parking is a buck for three hours! Pay before you leave or use a credit card at check out booth.

Alyx Barnes: My son and I both skate at Med Star Caps Iceplex as part of the figure skating program. The rink takes significant precautions both on occupancy and cleaning protocols to keep skaters and staff safe. In this time of the pandemic, masks are also mandatory on the figure skating rink and in the facility overall. Hours for figure skating are somewhat reduced most Fall/Winters due to the Caps need for the ice, but if early mornings work for you, there is generally ice time to reserve. Reservations are made via the OpenSports or Dash apps. Classes and individual lessons are available. My son completed the Basic skating lesson series here and now does Sky High for more advanced figure skaters. He also participated in some of the Summer figure skating camps, which are offered for various ability level skaters. He has really enjoyed his skating journey so far and this is largely due to the wonderful coaches (Mary Clamp and Connor Tasker, to name two) and fellow skaters on the ice with him. This is our go-to rink in the area. Great people and well maintained facility.

Tommy Stavrev: Here I'm sitting outside while my son plays his hockey game in there. Only one parent per child allowed even though there is plenty of space for social distancing. This is supposed to be responsible management? Never had the chance to attend any of my boy's games, and now that I'm here finally, I can't get in.

Anna Shumaker: My review is based on the public skating. The facility is clean and well maintained. However, the skate guards are not very friendly or helpful. They mostly skate around ignoring everyone else. As an obvious beginner, I would have appreciated being asked if I needed any help, some tips and tricks, or at the very least a greeting. The atmosphere was not very welcoming. I felt like an inconvenience rather than a guest who paid money to be here.

Silver Spring Outdoor Ice Skating Rink: what do users think?


Jasmin Adease: We were years ago and it was great. This year was terrible. We rented skates and they were either patched up so you couldn't tie them very fast or they were not properly sharp. They gave me a new pair but those blades weren't sharp either. They have to have a certain edge for you to be able to push yourself off without losing balance. Even my old pair lasted for years without having to get them sharpened. They must really not maintain those skates. I advise you bring your own skates.

Jack Reacher: Ice is patchy as hell and they clean it very rarely. Customer service is also lacking. The guy I was talking to literally left me hanging mid-conversation. If you’ve got kids, don’t do it as well — a kid fell and was audibly crying because he hurt himself. In other places there’s usually an employee on the ice to tend to these situations, but they had no one on the ice. There was an employee on the outside and he watched the kid cry for a while before he decided to intervene after all the guests stopped skating to check. Seriously, save your money.

Christian Mukete: I got here all the time during winter, sometimes crowded, sometimes not. But overall love place and they’re restaurants nearby and a whole imax theater so this is perfect

Karen Lopez: Small rink and tends to be crowded but always a fun time. Great for people of all ages! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Cristofer Jhons: Came with my sister yesterday and it was so much fun. Staff was extremely friendly and the prices are pretty cheap. We enjoyed it so much we'll definitely be back. I also like the skates this place rents out compared to others, the ones here are padded so they don't cut into the back of you foot which allows you to skate longer. All around an excellent place to go with friends or family. 😊

solosian: Went yesterday and it's a decent ice rink. Prices aren't bad for adults. However, after 5pm it got pretty busy which definitely overcrowded this small rink. Additionally, I don't know how often the Zamboni gets used but the ice was getting very chopped up and was far from smooth. I'd recommend this place during the day when folks are at work, and I'd hope the staff would more regularly smooth the ice.

Tina J Baby: Me and my Daughters had fun it was their first time going they really like ice skating! We enjoyed our selves! But only thing they need more Penguin guards for the kid's but other than that me and my family will be going again.

Kaylin Hunzicker: Fun if you’re a kid sure, but if you’re older actually trying to skate get ready to spend your entire time avoiding children pushing penguins. They go fast as hell and can’t stop and you have a 9/10 chance of wiping one out. I’ve seen it. Other than that the rink is also pretty small (which makes avoiding the penguin children even harder) but overall it’s alright. Little on the expensive side.

PnC: Company makes it hard to book a large group. You can only purchase 2 tickets at a time. Person on the phone could not tell me how many openings they have for a slot and said I have to use the website. Trying to book for 8 people. What happens if I book 6 people and then there's no room for the last 2?
Response: PnC, We wish you would reconsider your review as we are following the directions of the County Health Department to keep things as safe as possible. Please understand that there are limitations for your safety and the safety of everyone. The reservation system is designed to keep people from being in groups and we do not have the ability to change or control what is available. It is not our desire to make things hard, but we do strive to make things as safe as we can for everyone. Please plan ahead to make reservations as far in advance for the best availability, you can book two weeks in advance. Best, Lance

Erin McGuire: Last night for outdoor skate this season and rink is lovely!

Cabin John Ice Rink: what do users think?


Tracy Needham: We really like this rink. We've been taking classes there for years. Sign up for classes early. Even when we've been on the waiting list, they can usually accommodate us. Lots of opportunities for public skate to practice and have fun.

Luke Gibala: They've been having employee issues or something. Whoever opens for the early SNP. They have been late and haven't showed. The NHL rink definitely isn't maintained properly. It' rushed to be done by the Zamboni driver. It did used to be great, ran and operated well. It did have great staff but there is always hope.

Jack jack: The ice rink is a great place to skate. I love to come here more than any other ice rink in the area because it is such a friendly and family oriented place. Staff is very approachable.

Morela Granda Linares: Great place to skake. 3 ice rinks. Pay attention to the public skate hours before going.
Response: Thank you for your rating and for supporting Montgomery Parks.

Benjamin Polster: Please Read the full review: I’m a former employee from 2015-2019. Loved working here and it’s great for hockey and figure skating. That said, I decided to look up this place again out of curiosity and and low and behold; the most recent 1 star review from 2 months ago starts off with criticism of Nancy. For those of you who want to take your kids here for lessons, Avoid her like the plague. I had witnessed her verbally abusing children on multiple occasions and one time screamed at inexperienced skaters during a public skate for falling down. Any skating qualified instructor would know that falling down is an part of learning how to skate and learning how to do it correctly is very important. She treated employees like absolute garbage. I was no exception to that. She made an assumption that I had autism and told my coworkers I needed to be suspended and given special special needs training. This happened on multiple occasions as a matter of fact. Not to mention, her instructor bio says she’s a national coach but I have not found anything to back that up. She’s related by marriage to a figure skating legend but multiple people who have skated around her for decades have implied that she basically used her last name to advance her career and is basically a fraud. We used to joke that Nancy is living proof that only the good die young. I guess my point is, there are lots of good instructors at Cabin John. Don’t pick her, especially if it’s for your kids.

Anonymous Person: For starters, I’m a current employee at this rink so I’m keeping my identity hidden. But I most likely will be for no longer. I would like to say for the most part it’s really great working here. Everyone is very nice and it’s not a bad working environment. However, there are a ton of issues with communication between scheduling and what the job entails. I help with group lessons and we don’t receive any type of schedule of the group lessons. We’re expected to show up and just go with the flow which makes things complicated when parents ask questions about where their kids are supposed to have class. My one star review is so that there will be attention drawn to the treatment employees by some of the coaches. Nancy Lussi for one is not only rude to the employees but, also the children. I don’t really interact with her much since she hardly teaches anymore. However, Alicia Cavanaugh is another coach who’s behavior is not okay. She works okay with the children but is incredibly condescending if she thinks you can be bossed around. I understand that I am not a “real” coach but I work for the rink and my job is to assist with the group lessons. It isn’t okay for her to boss me around and tell me what to do when I’m helping out with another coach. It also is not okay for her to raise her voice to tell me what to do when she’s instructing children- that just doesn’t set a good example. I’ve worked with countless other coaches and they are all incredibly respectful and kind. She just isn’t at all. I’m not the only person with complaints about her. If the management sees this- please talk to Alicia. It’s not okay for her to treat the group lesson or even camp employees rudely. I know that at the end of the day if I quit it doesn’t matter since they’ll just find someone else to replace what I do. However it’s not okay that employees have to deal with rude coaches and they can get away with it scotch free.
Response: Anonymous - We are sorry to hear that you have had a negative experience working at Cabin John Ice Rink. We would love to engage with you offline and see how we can work to make it a better job experience. We do ask that you speak with your supervisor or directly with the Ice Skating Program Manager. Sincerely, Montgomery Parks

Jason Strachman Miller: The rink is nice but definitely avoid if you have smaller kids or one's that are not strong skaters. They only had two skating devices to help those with limited skills, and there was at least 30 people in need of them. The walls were crowded with people clinging for dear life. As for us, we lasted about ten mins. Total waste of money. May visit again once the kids are more skilled skaters.
Response: Jason, We are sorry to hear that you had a less than excellent experience at Cabin John Ice Rink. We do want to make the experience a great one for skaters of all ages. We offer Parent & Tot and Family Skate times at CJIR but regardless, we want you and your family to have a positive time on the ice. If you wish to reach out to our staff for further assistance please contact Heather at CabinJohnIce@montgomeryparks.org or 301-765-8620. Sincerely, Montgomery Parks

Jodi Dobinsky: Went for open skate and was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to find space on the rink. It was busy, but not impossibly crowded. Almost everyone was wearing a mask (which was great given the number of under-vaccination-age kids in the rink).

Joe Catalada: First of all, when Nancy Lussi is going to be kicked out? Everybody has been annoyed by her for at least over ten years since I started skating here. She has been abusing kids and guests enough already. Many people/kids don't want to come here b/c of her. Look at review by Sam 3 years ago and by S Malone-Rietz from 5 years ago and how many people gave him the thumb ups. If people don't feel too much, they don't waste time to write them up. I don't think staffs here take any suggestion seriously. They only care about making money and allowing coaches to make money. The rink is fine for recreational skaters. But for serious skaters, prepare to go bankrupt. Cabin John and Wheaton are the only rinks in the DMV area that does not offer freestyle membership. Don't count Rockville Ice b/c that place is clearly catered for hockey. Perhaps they only care about synchro. See also review by Lana Grant. I heard the place is still operating at loss. How? The place almost always so busy. Maybe, it is because they hire so many stuffs to stand around? I have never seen this many people working in a privately run rink. Oh but they hired another assistant director. Anyway it looks as if nobody wants to go back work there anymore. Maybe management should evaluate themselves. They make freestyle refund so difficult. Sometimes rink broke, sometimes kids got sick, got injured. Have to email director, keep watching for reply email, sometimes took 3 days sometimes have to email again. Director has no better thing to do? Online sign up after covid has made the situation even worst. The old man Mitch now didn't want walk in sign up, keep complaining all the time. Don't get me wrong, Mitch was a nice guy. He is just getting too old to handle what he is asked to do. He used to be the go to sharpener as well, but at one point he started damaging blades. Hey, no hands and eyes can be steady forever - not blaming him. BTW, if you want to read and keep track of your punch has been used, good luck. They made it so complicated that it is impossible to check. We don't know how many time our account has been incorrectly charged by the front desk. Just go back to paper coupon would solve the problem, or make membership plans. In summary, most people are nice. There are some mean coaches who think that they own the ice when they teach, but no one as annoying as Nancy Lussi. She is like a witch roaming around cursing people. Other than that there are things management can do to improve the experiences of the usual/frequent visitors if they do care. First thing first, boot out Nancy. FYI, Reston did boot out a coach b/c she was mean. No name name here. She moved to Ashburn and similarly got complained by parents. Perhaps she will be booted again if she does not change behavior. It has been too long for Nancy.
Response: Thank you for letting us know about your experience at Cabin John Ice Rink. We will be looking at this internally but welcome you to email cabinjohnice@montgomeryparks.org if you would like to discuss this with rink management. We strive to make every visit to CJIR a five-star experience. Thank you, CJIR.

Jacques Bertrand: Scoreboard issues, horrible lighting.I think they should have reserved spot for referees, so they will be more enticed to come.

Washington Canal Park: what do users think?


Mother Goose: Went with my children and grandchildren and everyone at every age level and every experience level had a great time. Food court is skater accessible as are the restrooms. Restrooms were in need of upkeep. The pizza and ice-cream were wonderful. Would definitely go again.

Prabha Shankar: A very good urban park with water fountains for the kids , some food place to try and it is Mainly having a seating with roadside view while childrens playing on the water fountain . Roadside parking are available but it might be tough to get at busy times , nearby there is a Marriott garage parking also a couple of blocks has carriage parking as well. All in all a great place to rest while kids in the park

Rick Roll: This is a nice small park that is well kept. The kids love playing in the water and the ample seating ensures that everyone can relax. There is a pizza, sushi, and Gelato restarunt attached to the park as well as numerous other retailers in the area to get food and drink. If you live in the area and have kids I recommend this park on a hot day.

Jessica McNutt: A fine a little park in my neighborhood. Not much to say about it beyond that. There is ice skating in the winter and a fountain in the summer. It's generally clean, located near a handful of take out options and there are many places to sit.

Will Iam: Decided to eat upstairs here in the supposed “green area” after picking up some local takeout, from ABC Pony (their Cajun fish sandwich is highly recommended). Green area not so green with all of the green brown and clearly not maintained with weeds abundant. Only benefit was wide open space with few people around so could comfortably dine sans masks. If maintained better-would add some stars. Wooden benches will definitely be rotten in coming years as can see clearly have not been treated and think another material such as Trex should have been used for better aging and wear with elements.

Vlad Sinayuk: Lovely ice skating rink in SE DC near the Nationals Stadium. It features a unique figure 8 type of shape, which actually makes skating there more fun. This is not a touristy site, but rather a place for local families and school groups to hit the ice together. For rentals, I recommend the standard blue skates because the hockey skates don’t have any padding whatsoever in them.

SupaMan Tey: Love to ice skate here plus they have one of my favorite pizza spots with Wise Guys. My wife also loves the gelato here.

Jeff Boelter: Great weather kids playing in water. Very family oriented

Smart Kitty: Good Place to eat inside and outside good prices good scenery good customer service enjoy going there no one begging for money that I dislike.

Voncia Hall: Took my granddaughter ice skating for her birthday

Shauna Ward: Great place. Good rentals and good prices. There also a cool snack bar inside if you get hungry after all the skating.

Matt S: Love the place and great facilities. Can the people who run the public skating sessions particularly on weekends please take a hard look at how many figure skaters are there practicing. This isn’t a public skate when both ends of the rink are filled with figure skaters occupying them practicing. There is a perpetual figure skating lesson ran by the same woman every weekend in the middle of the rink. A few times I just about got hit with the blade of a raised leg figure skater practicing whatever that is. Please let the figure skating community there know there should be dedicated ice sessions for this- it isn’t the place at public skating.

Robert Entwistle: Excellent experience buying hockey skates here. They fitted me, heat molded and sharpened the skates, all right there. Lots of skates in stock. Helpful pro shop.

Jose Munoz: Nice venue. This place has 2 rinks. A hockey store and snack bar with Starbucks coffee. 1 rink has an over look area so you can stay warm.

Anna Mari Green: The facility has 2 rinks, NHL and and Olympic sized. It also has a snack bar and Pro shop in the building. The ice is well maintained. They have a membership program for discounted ice time which cannot currently be maintained online. Getting to the rink can be a challenge when there are a lot of bike riders on the W&OD. The riders do not stop or yield to cars. It stresses me out and I'm afraid I might hit someone or be hit by another car coming in that doesn't know the trail is there.

Colin Barnett: Sami Saghir is the best front desk person you could ever ask for.

Thomas C: Good people, nice rink! Overall a very nice experience but no 5 star rating because there wasn't anything especially extraordinary. If you have your own skates or want to rent some, this is a fairly inexpensive and nice place.

Jacques Bertrand: I think they should have reserved spot for referees, so they will be more enticed to come.

Elisa Hernandez: Great place for kids and adults. I send my sons here and they love it. The ice is great, the space is large enough for everyone to go out and practice, and the locker rooms are convenient and easy to access.

Brilin “Brilin” Brilin: This place is really nice for children and adults. The staff is super helpful. I have been going to them for years and will not go anywhere else. I am very close to the Ashburn Ice house but they are super rude and arrogant. I happily drive the extra miles to have pleasant caring staff. My children have been at SkateQuest for regular skate lessons and summer camps and they love the staff. The skate manager Shelley is super helpful. Thank you SkateQuest!

Dawn Davis: Love skating here. My fiancé call play basketball, my son can play at the playground and I can skate. A perfect trifecta.

Nicole Sharee: An oasis in the heart of SE, DC! A peaceful place to watch the sunset too! The grounds are well-kept, and there's enough space for everyone to relax and play!

Kev- keepingitreal: Anacostia Park Amenities Include a Roller Skating Pavilion, Music, Restrooms, Playground, Outdoor Basketball Courts, Baseball Field, Tennis Courts, Open Green Space, Walking Trails, Picnic Tables, Boat ramps and Plenty of Parking Space.

Roslyn Rawles: This brought back so many memories as a kid skating here. The music and the people were great. We had so much fun young and old.

Kennika Jones: This is my favorite place I love to skate here its outdoors and it's always lit I always have lot of fun and I leave my heart on the floor it has many entrances and places to relax I even fly my kite here

LaNita Bundy: My 2 teen skaters had so much fun they didn't want to go. They really enjoyed their selves. Looks like the rink is holding water in its front right corner and needs a little repair or TLC. Hazard cones were in place and it didn't stop anyone from having a good time. The rink was also well lite and park police made rounds often so we also felt safe even as the last few persons to leave.

L. Anderson: I enjoyed this park very much. The kind people of DC and the surroundings

Jamil Carter: I love it here. Nice place to clear your mind The vibe is always right at the skating rink. Smooth music or "Hip" music. No judgement, fall all you want lol you won't fall NO more!!! 💁🏾‍♀️

A. Brad: It was similar OK There were some regular folks didn't know that there was an event and so they wanted to do what they wanted to do Like allow children to Roll around with scooters Inside the ring

Rachelle Mitchell: This pavilion is big and spacious! I love the community feeling from everyone in the surrounding area enjoying themselves at the park. It was a great outdoor experience.

Mount Vernon RECenter: what do users think?


Crystal Groves: I grew up going here and until today, I would have given every trip 5 stars. Today I wish I could rate ZERO stars. I also wish I could rate the ice rink and pools separately as the ice skating was wonderful as well as all the employees, friendly smiles and help all around. The pool however is run by teenagers either sitting in their office or directly reprimanding children rather than informing them of rules OR possibly speaking to the parent (me) that’s standing at the edge of the pool. When did it become okay for a lifeguard to discipline a 10 year old for bouncing a second time in the diving board? We have been here 30 minutes and my son has been pulled aside by two separate guards whom have both run straight back to the office when approached by me. Both things he was stopped for (bouncing more than once and deep end swim test), he was one of at least 4 doing the same activities together in the pool. Why him? Why do the rules in this facility not apply to all visitors. Needless to say, I understand why the attendance here has dropped & the reviews are terrible. We will be joining the majority in going to other local rec centers.

Barbara Faith: Loved it. Great place to swim. More private, less crazy, more relaxing than the other pools in this county group. The spa area, also smaller but worked well. Love the stand up pressure valves! Though the shower area is much smaller, I had no problem being able to shower since the place was never crowded while I was there. Showers, bathroom stalls, and locker room very clean. Just a quieter more serene place to workout and swim. I wish I discovered you at the beginning of spring instead of the end of summer, and my time in Alexandria. If the kids move back to the area, this Grammy will come here first for my summer exercise program.

Gail Carlisle: Son is taking swimming lessonsSo far I'm pleased with instructor and progress.

Sonlm Wells: Facility exercise area is smaller than expected. They don't offer a lot of aerobic or exercise classes at this location. Disappointed.

Eric Hernandez: They give ice skating lesson to kids with special needs. Can't get any cooler than that. Thank you to the staff and volunteers

Savannah Langley: My favorite rink so far. Definitely the place to go if your thinking of taking up ice skating 👍👍

Jules: A good place :) great ice skating rink and wonderful pool. Staff is lovely and very accommodating. Please allow others to register for aquatics as well, not just the usual crowd :) it seems it has became a private pool for retirees and there are never any available slots for anyone else.

Chris Rizzo: Please change skating direction half way thru public skating time to allow skaters to learn and work on turning right ☺️

Carl Josephson: This place has some good and some bad. The bad will make you never want to come back. First let me talk about the facilities. I was there to swim. My goal was to swim 3 days a week at any convenient hour in order to meet my workout goals. I am an in shape younger person, I am going to do my workout and my laps, I will be done in 30 minutes or less. If you are of similar description, do not, and I repeat, DO NOT GO HERE. The pool was a fine 25 yard lap pool. I have gone to this pool at all hours of all days. Monday at 4pm, Monday at 8am, Tuesday at Noon, Wednesday at 5pm, Thursday at 9am, Friday at 9am. I normally get a lane to myself. But most of the time I have to wait or share a lane before that happens. Let me tell you some things you will see at this pool. Older people working out in the pool for 1-2 hours. Not actually working out though. Very out of shape people working out in the pool for 1-2 hours. Not actually working out though. Water aerobics taking up half the pool for 4 hours. A swim class taking up the pool for 4.5 hours. A diving class taking up the pool for 4 hours. I am not exaggerating on these class time. One sign literally said "lane closed for swimming class 3:30-8:00. It is nonsense and you'll see this every single day. The amount of time I've seen a senior aged person or someone extremely out of shape just treading water in a lap lane is ridiculous. This wouldn't be an issue if half the pool wasn't reserved and they weren't there for 2 hours. On one occasion I waited for lane, finally got one, did an extended work out, showered and dried off, went to the pool the get something I forgot, and this person who had been leaning against the edge of the pool since I got there was STILL THERE! I have not touched on the staff yet. First I have had 0 issues with lifeguard and managers there. The younger workers scanning passes..... Good god, my expectation were already low but it's bad. If you need anything but an pass scanned from these people good luck! I am currently in a billing dispute with this center after canceling my bi-weekly pass. Except my bi weekly pass was not canceled and I got billed, because they didn't know how to do it. Also despite saying it's a "bi-weekly" it's actually not. Apparently signing up for bi weekly is signing up for a monthly pass that bills you bi-weekly, MAYBE. I am actually not sure of this as the girl had no idea what she was talking about. Overall I really tried to like this place but it's horrendous.

Daniel Hackett: Very affordable, but the ice rink can get busy and bumpy on weekends.

Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run: what do users think?


Nancy Price: We visited Ice & Lights on Christmas Day. What a fun, relaxing evening enjoying all the beautiful lights. Loved watching families and couples taking photo ops and even laying on the ground looking up at all the lights! Awesome place to take the kids! Much better than sitting in a car looking at the lights. This was an experience!
Response: Thank you Nancy! We're glad you enjoyed visiting Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run! Happy Holidays!

Ada Rich: Good price for the fun! I can't think of any complaints at all. The kids really enjoyed themselves and we did too!
Response: Thank you Ada! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run!

K S: This light show was horrible I paid almost $60.00 for our family for the most ghetto display I’ve ever seen in my life. The Love sign was beautiful though. They could’ve done better. The light show in Bull Run was spectacular,as compared to this one. As soon as you breathe it’s over. The Pizza was cold and nasty, and was thrown out. We could’ve taken the kids around the block for free. Some of the displays were falling apart as well. We will never come here again. It was TERRIBLE, and a waste of money. It looks better from the highway. Very disappointed.
Response: I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the show, but glad to know you enjoyed Bull Run Festival of Lights, our sister show! We are continuing to add new displays to the show each year as this is our third year. I am sorry to hear your pizza was cold- we always recommend asking for a manager on your visit if you find a product less than ideal so we can fix it right away. Thank you for your feedback and we will look for ways to improve the experience for the future.

Nan Bronder: Spent an enjoyable night there last night with my family. The place was clean, well laid out, had a good variety of scenery and best of all they limited the number of people allowed in the attraction.
Response: Thank you Nan! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run!

Shirin Toychiyeva: Its a really nice place. Not sure about some of super negative reviews. We had fun. The lights are magical, nice holiday music and songs. We enjoyed hit chocolate and donuts. Just do not go early, before your appointment. Otherwise you wait in the car or like us outside freezing lol
Response: Thank you Shirin! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run. Our ice skating rink is open through the end of February so please come out for some more winter fun!

Shannon Johnson: I really don't understand the bad reviews! Bull Run charges $20 a car to drive through their light show. For a family of four that's $5 per person. It's $5 per person to enter Ice and Lights, and you can stay for as long as you want. Stay warm by the space heaters, fire, and in the igloos. For $12 more you get ice time and skate rental.That's less than Fairfax Ice Arena. The kids are even allowed to use skate assists for free, unlike the Reston Town Center Ice Arena where you have to rent them for a charge. This is a county-run event, set your expectations with that. Don't compare it to ICE at Gaylord, or Enchant at National's Park.
Response: Thank you Shannon! We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your visit to Ice and Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run. We agree that our prices are very reasonable, especially for families. Although our lights will be closing on January 5th, our ice skating rink will remain open on Fridays-Sundays until the end of February. We hope you can come back and visit us! Happy Holidays!

Irsan Sutanto: GA fee $9.19, ice skating ⛸ additional fees. Please bring camera 🎥 for taking lots of pictures.
Response: Thank you Irsan! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run! Our ice skating rink is open on weekend until the end of February. We hope you come back for some more winter fun!

Kristine Hyon: We purchased tickets for the ice and lights this past Saturday. We live 2hrs away and was running late to the event. I tried calling the number on the website to see if it was still ok to show up and it was only an automated voice recording, did not let us speak to an actual person. When we got there, the front desk lady rudely refused to let us in nor help us out at all. She said we have to talk about rescheduling or a refund with the website we purchased the tickets on which i understand. My 6 year old had to go to the bathroom super bad after the 2hr drive and she refused to even let us do that. I emailed the website to see if i could get a refund or reschedule and nobody is contacting me back. Customer service sucks these days.
Response: Thank you for your feedback and I apologize that you had that experience. This does not meet our Customer Service Expectations. Please reach out to the Manager at iceandlights@nvrpa.org and provide more details about your experience so that we can ensure this never happens again. We want to make this right for you and your family. While we do have timed tickets for ice skating, we understand that life happens. We want to be able to work with our guests to exceed your expectations. Please note that customers have the ability to transfer their tickets ahead of your ticket time from a desktop computer (I understand this wasn’t an option if you were in your car). I apologize that you weren’t able to get through on the phone. We will review your experience with our staff to use as a learning and training opportunity for what SHOULD have occurred. Again, please reach out to the Manager to provide more information about you and your visit so we can try to make this right. Sincerely, Ice & Lights Management

Tammy Spifflebottom: The lights were beautiful, but the ice skating rink was not fun. They didn’t have enough ice skates (I wore mens), and the ice was chopped up and bumpy, almost impossible to skate on.
Response: Tammy--we're sorry to hear that the experience did not meet your expectations. We are glad that you enjoyed the lights! We will review our ice maintenance guidelines to see if we can continue to improve. With the warmer temperatures, it is harder to keep the ice integrity in good shape, but we work hard to resurface between skate sessions to provide the best experience. We hope you will join us next year for the light show to see what new displays we add!

Amanda Doran: A fun, winter date night. Loved skating at the rink, enjoying a slice of pizza from the concession stand afterwards, and strolling along the lights display with a cup of hot chocolate finish put the evening.
Response: Thank you Amanda! We're thrilled you had a great date night at Ice & Lights: The Winter Village at Cameron Run!

Mt Pleasant Ice Arena: what do users think?


Brent Kendall: I have been using this facility as a player, coach, referee and casual skater since 2008. The city recently dumped over 2 million dollars to "fix" the place up. Took over 2 years to complete. They addressed some things but left many important things out for an ice rink. Seems like they were more concerned with fancy lights in the main lobby. Who goes to a rink to hang in the main lobby? They put showers in all the locker rooms which is a plus. BUT..... now there is barely enough room for a team to fit in the rooms to change. Second, the scoreboard needed to be replaced and wasn't. Many lights are out and you can't see things on the board. This is a huge negative as a coach, official, and fans. They did absolutely nothing to address the lighting in the building above the playing surface. Dark and dingy. Really not safe for competitive hockey. There is still no officials room to change in. We get an office upstairs with no shower facilities. Without officials ,games can't be played. Whoever was in charge of this project made huge errors. They obviously didn't consult with anyone that has renovated an ice rink. Such a shame and a waste of taxpayers money. Such a shame.

Griffin May: One of the worst rinks I have ever played at. All the positive reviews are from public skaters who (no offense) are just there for the good prices. As a player the rink sucks. The water barely freezes after the zamboni is on, there are huge divots in the corners (which is extremely dangerous), and the benches are designed horribly, with little space and support beams making it hard to move. And to top all of this off, the city recently spent 2 million dollars renovating the locker rooms and lobby, but not the stands, benches or ice which is the actual purpose of an ice arena. Absolutely awful.

David Sugarman: He looks more like that today at my granddaughter's birthday party. Got the teacher about five or six of her friends have let go of the wall and skate.

Gloria Prettiman: Lovely place to skate, convenient location, reasonable cost. Those who have bad things to say, shame on you

Jean Donati: Modern facility. Nice ice. Great people.

Julian: Such a great place to skate. Good prices and great facilities

KAREN CHANCE: Good location and well kept facility for all ages

Sarah Brownstein: Had fun! Facility old and needs aesthetic repairs, rental skates is a gamble - some good condition, some very not. But for $5+3 it was worth the money. Gets really busy Sunday afternoon.

Jackie Fields: Of course it's cold...it's an ice skating rink! I loved it! I had a birthday party there for my grandson's 9th birthday and they were very accommodating, friendly, and it was a great experience! And they have the wider skates which is really good. We loved it and can't wait to go back!

Benjamin Zeigler: IF YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR OWN SKATES DO NOT COME HERE! Yes they are cheap and the rink is taken care of well enough, BUT if you need to rent skates, just don't.. The skates are so worn they are falling apart, no sole anymore. The laces were either more than 2 feet too long or couldn't even tie the entire way. When I went to get my shoes back they didn't even bring me the right ones at first.. Lastly, the skates are SUPER dull.. I might return if I get my own skates.. Maybe.

The Washington Harbour: what do users think?


MILKOS D SOSA: This is a very nice place to eat and have a few drinks. It is essentially an entertainment venue with shops, restaurants, and bars. Several boats that give tours of the river and water taxis that take you to The Wharf also leave from here. A space to take cool photos, and enjoy the youthful atmosphere of Geortown.

Reema Srivastava: Cool getaway along the Potomac River. The Halloween spirit is evident! Enjoy the cool breeze & walk along the waterfront. I couldn’t see if the waterfront is wheelchair accessible. If you’re not dining in any restaurant there , then look out for Starbucks restroom facility - the only one 😔. The place is crowded on weekends and parking can be tough. One can easily spend an hour walking around before a waterfront sit down dinner/ lunch.

Aaron Ochse: Nice spot for dinner or lunch in good weather. Some shops as well as the restaurants.

archana pillai: Vibrant, lively, musical,friendly atmosphere all-round.It was my first time after a decade to watch so many happy people together.

Tonya Coffey-DMV REALTOR / eXp Realty: Lots of good food options and great views. Not much parking but garages are nearby. Very family friendly location.

Natalee Cameron: I hadn't been to this part of the Harbor before. My partner had us down to check flood waters and we ended up making a day of it. Great atmosphere, plenty of amazing restaurants around as well!

Kenny T: Very relaxing and chill spot! Highly recommended!! You'll really be treating yourself if you go

Shaunde' Marie: Beautiful views! Many things to do, including boat rides, restaurants, bars and more. Parking is a little expensive, unless you can find st parking and not get a tkt/towed.

Aishwarya Sabane: The pink flowers along the road looked so pretty. The walk by the water was very peaceful. The place was bustling on a Friday evening.

Cass: Did a cruise here going around the harbor talking about iconic landmarks it was a perfect spot to grab some lunch sit down at the tables on the boat and by far my favorite way to have lunch and learn some stuff!

Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool: what do users think?


Yvonne: Absolutely beautiful. The perfect place to take a walk and to enjoy the day. Not many words can capture the whole feeling and vibe when strolling along.

Jose Ortega: Does it get better then this place? Sure the water is not that clean and there are so many people trying to take selfies that it can get nuts at times but if you go early in the morning, you can have the whole place to yourself. Walk around and just take it all in. Put the phone away and just enjoy it.

Saad Althabiti: Fabulous place to visit and have a nice walk, especially in the winter :)

Joered05: This place is very nice looking. The pool itself is very large and properly taken care of to maintain its clean looking water. The pool can be seen from the Lincoln Memorial and other structures in the area. I would reccomend walking by this pool if you get the chance!

Rodrigo Gonzalez: It is a fantastic place. The view is amazing. You can feel a very good vibe just by watching the landscape.

Naseer Faheem: Although we went on a cloudy evening, still lots of places to see.

James Walker: Great views from the Lincoln Reflecting Pool. Location for lots of iconic events, ceremonies and celebrations. Latest visit was during the unveiling of the new statues, commemorating the President's Dogs.

John Muhlhauser: I absolutely enjoyed my visit! Even though there is a partial government shutdown I saw no signs of trash or negligence here. It wasn't crowded so it made for some really good pictures to be taken. Also a good place for a walk, jog, or even just sit and admire the views

Rachel Milito your Realtor: The reflecting pool is a great walk and beautiful scenic views! Definitely recommend waking around the area and viewing the large fountain also. Loved seeing the veterans in this space as well it was heart warming. 💓

Kailash Mongar: What a amazing place to visit. Limited parking, be prepared to walk and have some water. Love to visit in coming days

Mimi DiPietro Family Skating Center: what do users think?


YAMILKA BRYANT: Very affordable Came here with the UA House kids as a volunteer event and the children had a blast! Admissions is VERY affordable. The children loved it, I would bring my kids here. Big, spacious and clean. Go take your kids ☺️

Janielle P. Maynard: Nice place for a quick skate with family or friends. Very affordable. Free street parking on weekends

Jaicel Asegurado: Friendly staff and super cheap! $5 entrance fee + $3 for the shoes. It's not very friendly for beginners and also they dont have rails that you can hold onto if you are trying to skate for the first time. Other than that, it was a nice place!

J K: Great place for winter activity. Lessons for kids are good to get started. Public sessions: Inexpensive and not crowded. Staff is good. Some of the older leather skates to rent aren't great for beginners. Make sure to get the newer models available.

Matthew Bartholme: This place is timeless. I love the setup and the feel. I literally felt like a kid, like somehow I had traveled back to the 90's. Parking could be a problem, but I was able to park on the street about a block away. If you get a chance to see this at night take it.

Dayona Harvey: Great prices. Not often crowded. Decent music playing in the background. Friendly staff. A bunch of new ice-skates. Great for families groups, couples etc

Elizabeth Jones: I went for a friend's birthday and had a blast. Please note: cash only. The skates are a little old and beat up, but the price was right and I wasn't there to show off, just have fun. Mission accomplished!

Marissa Herro: Showed online that it was open (open season listed as October-March & this was November). It wasn’t open. Several groups also showed up there at the same time to skate & all disappointed. No one answered the phone. Nothing on the door to say why it was closed. Call ahead so you don’t waste your time either

Derian Anderson: In general, coming from a hockey player perspective, is one of the worst rinks in the DC/Metro area. The location is hard to get to, the ice is always choppy, the boards have no give to them if you get hit into them, there are holes in the boards where the zamboni comes out, and the locker rooms are not big enough to fit a whole team in one

William Small: A gem in the gem of Patterson Park. Baltimore has a lot to offer and many great values - this place is a steal at about $6 including rental. The family skating center puts us all on stage in the romantic, tragic and true comedy of all Baltimorons falling down and getting up.

Nationals Park: what do users think?


Kyle D: Beautiful ballpark. Wide open concourses and plenty of good choices (very pricey though but that’s expected at at a ballpark no matter where you go.) Convenient location close to the Metrorail station. Coming from Boston, this ballpark doesn’t compare to the charm, history, and character of Fenway Park but it is nonetheless a great place to watch a game and it seemed like no matter where you sit, you have a great view.

Elliot Schumacher: National's Park is a classic ballpark, with no crazy field dimensions or other gimmicks used at other ballparks. It is super easy to get to. The metro rail has a stop within sight of the center field entrance. While the Nats do use dynamic ticket pricing to raise costs when playing league rivals or on certain weekends, there are still plenty of affordable options that still give a great view of the game.

George: Great first experience here in DC at National's Stadium. We are Astros fans and had a great experience the past two days, first day sitting lower level for a night game and 2nd day sitting upper level in the shade for a day game. Any/all staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. We ate everything from pizza, chicken tenders, steak of the union sandwich, french fries, hot dogs, and Dippin Dots. Everything we had to eat was good and there were multiple places to choose from, lines were never long when we went. Kids had a blast and we made memories to last a lifetime. Our hotel was within short walking distance which was very convenient getting to and coming back from the game.

Anthony Rinella: Nationals Park is a beautiful stadium, we bought tickets to sit in the PNC Diamond suite and while it was a nice experience and you have great views of the game it doesn't compare to the Legends seats at Yankee stadium. The food options within in the suite are good but not great. In any event, that is a beautiful park to watch a ballgame.

M. Scott Zimmerman: Great view from almost all seats although smallish for 6ft 1 and 230lbs. Food adequate but pricey and varies in quality between vendors. Love the concourse round the main level and the diamond club is nice.

Archbishop Dr Smith Abrams Almasi MDiv DD THD PhD: DC National's Baseball Park...Step into Washington, DC - USA...with 5,378,000 people who now call this region home...according to the 2020 US Census report. Just check it out and tell me what you think… Let's make it plain...straight talk. "DC " has a new makeover from Chocolate City to Ivy City. A new face of life is spreading all over the DC/Maryland/Virginia-Metropolitan area. Real Estate is king in DC.location, location, location. If you own property in DC don't sell...prices are going up in 2022 you are sitting on a diamond in the rough. Demand is high...and more are coming down Hi95. Let me show you the way. What can I say about this groundbreaking development? It is pleasant to look at. Good look, and good feeling for this new community. Upscale, quiet surrounding. 24/7/365. Close proximity to all transportation points: taxi, service to first class limo, as well as, top-shelf concierge service, metro bus, metro rail, to MARC Train, on to your plane… catching your flight right on time... Reagan International Airport, (BWI Baltimore/Washington, DC International Airport), and even Dulles International Airport. Pet walking trail, everything including for your best friend. Pet park, pet grooming nearby. Spectacular, spacious, fresh atmosphere... This is the feeling of excellence. Be the first one to rent or lease one of these dynamic spaces for your home or for your business. Very nice accommodation, state of the art amenities, galore landscaping. Just beautiful. Upcoming architectural design building for 2022. The surrounding area is also great with plenty of amenities such as shops and popular restaurants.

Cindy Luetkemeier: Great Game! We love the Nats even though they lost today, they put up a good fight!! Pizza was good & the beers were cold!

Christian Matlock: First time at this ball park. I didn’t have a ticket and didn’t know where to get one from. There was a helpful young lady at the front that walked me all the way around the stadium to help me get a ticket. Once I was in, someone greeted me from guest services and gave me a first time certificate and welcome pack. Such a great experience.

Juanita Barnes: I was there for Enchant, a winter display of lights. It also happened to be bring your dog night. Lots of people, cute and sweet, friendly dogs, hot coca, and vendors. Personally, it was nice and worth it, but a one and done kind of event for me.

Henry Garcia: Love the Stadium. And I love the atmosphere there! The people are so nice and the fans are very friendly.

The St. James: what do users think?


Drea Dawson: Pretty impressive setup. Took a tour and way more than what meets the eye. The memberships are a bit pricey and could stand some adjustments. The entry fee for each event is pricey, but it seems like a good time so worth it for the occasional visit. For those without gym access it's a great deal monthly if you will come 4 or more days a week. The food area was very impressive as well as the kid area. Oh everything is timed and they are adamant about the time.

Rojina Al: The st. James Sports is a very awesome place. I went to this place in Springfield VA. with my kids and we had so much fun. They have many options gym, kids games, VR and online gaming, football stadium, water park, etc. As far as I realized food are restricted in many areas. Also, prices differ depending on how many hours you want to stay. However, this place offers membership. Also, the water park has different open days than the gym and the game places. So check their website. I couldn't buy tickets online so you have to call to reserve tickets. Very friendly staff. I recommend this place for family fun and birthday parties.

Ciara Long: A phenomenal facility to say the least! Our DC HBCU Alliance 5K was hosted here and I was truly impressed. Ample parking and the building exterior is beautiful but when you enter you see the gem that it truly is - areas for lacrosse, batting, wall climbing, weight and cardio training, saw there’s a water park as well as kid friendly areas as well. There were areas to shop with athletic gear including shoes plus a nice eatery. I’d love to come back on my own time and really experience The St. James for all it had to offer!

beyondTabu: It’s massive!! Everything from golf, swimming pool, basketball, ice hockey, football, restaurant, indoor play area, climbing gym, to an exercise gym. It’s a membership/ daily fee and it was pretty busy on a Saturday when we went to Super Awesome & Amazing indoor play. There’s also pretty good wifi in the entire complex.

Robert Christopher-Strayhorn: Incredible! Beautiful facility. Uniquely under a single roof, and great location for swimming, climbing, courts and fields, gymnast-ing, lifting, golf, ice skating, turf fielding, kid and adult parties, food and cocktails and more.

Ashley Kelley: A great place, atmosphere and very large. My kids and I love this place. Can't wait to go back. Big Field Areas

Marina Barchuk: Went on Thursday 3:30 pm ( they open at 3 pm -8pm ) told its 2 h waiting time , ok made reservations for 6 pm , when comeback was not busy at all and I paid for 2 h play time , VR was not working and computer area as well , and nobody know why . Then at 7: 30 ppl started to leave and employees started to cleaning up .so we left even dough paid till 8 pm . Place is ok I guess if you come yerly and make sure you make reservations.
Response: Hi Marina- Sorry to hear about your experience. To ensue you have a spot available in Super, Awesome, & Amazing, we recommend downloading The St. James App where you can make a reservation online. I will also escalate the VR & Esports issue to the Director of SAA for further review and action.

Nicole Scott: Something to do for everyone in the family. We drove an hour to come and explore their indoor Waterpark and trampoline/ fun center. Can't wait to do other activities.

Kelly Trott: INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS and most employees don't seem concerned with the inept functioning of the equipment in the "Super Awesome Amazing" area. There is no explanation on how to safely use any of the equipment at any part of the facility and on the obstacle course there isn't a stitch of padding below the 25ft off the ground course used principally by children. There is pure concrete below the climbing structure which seems to have faulty mechanics (doesn't move smoothly). Specifically there is a track that holds the harness the children are wearing as they move along the course but it doesn't move smoothly so the children (the smaller lightweight children can barely do this) are forced to drag it along with their one arm as they navigate a tricky course 25 feet off the ground. Little to no assistance is given when they get stuck and I saw employees sitting around on their phones rather than helping small kids navigate the course let alone help them move it. One employee was assisting but she couldn't do the work of the other 5 who weren't paying attention. It was terrifying to watch as a parent. The track needs to be fixed to run smoothly and padding needs to be added underneath the structure. This is dangerous equipment.

Tabitha Walter: I have been a member of the St. James for 2 months now, and I can’t say enough good things about the place! The staff is super friendly and hospitable. The entire facility is clean. They are consistently cleaning while I work out. There are many options to choose from when it comes to fitness whether it’s machines, free weights, cardio, various classes, sports-related activities, etc. I’m never bored there. Plus, it’s very family friendly and the fees are affordable. I feel great every time I’m there. The St. James has truly renewed my desire to be healthy.
Response: Thanks Tabitha! We're so glad to hear about your experience at The St. James :)

Lanham Skate Center: what do users think?


md Jolie: Very nice place! The workers there are fantastic and care a lot about your safety. A heads up though, the music is LOUD so if you've got sensitive hearing, fair warning. Also if you're planning to visit the food court, know that they have tile floors over there so if you're not that great at skating you might drop your food or drink.

Millennial Max: Amazing Skate Center with good quality skating shoes for all sizes.Cool DJ Themes!

Myra Edwards: I'm giving a 2 star because the kids had fun. I'm also giving a 2 star because it was extremely HOT 🔥 no AC at all. My kids was so hot I'm just glad the kids didn't pass out from it being so hot. It was 70 dollars for 4 kids and me and I didn't skate. 5 dollars added on to rent something for the kids to hold on too. Roller skate are dirty.. Total 75 to $80

Cynthia Saunders: We had a Great day at the Skating party today. Woo-Hop YESS! Staff was friendly and helpful.

Jay Hugee: Took the family skating after the Juneteenth Celebration in Watkins Regional Park…GREAT TIME! Can’t wait to return. ❤️🖤💚

Dayan Escobar: I won't give the 5 starts only because they don't allow inline skates... Otherwise, great team, clean facilities, great vibes!I would recommend it for those who want to learn how to skate.

suave tech: Good size rink and the floor has been...let's just say...modified. It still has lots of gaps in the wood planks and even more planks that are not completely smooth if you roll across them instead of down them. The great atmosphere is still there and MOST of the skaters are pretty friendly, especially once you come often and get to know them. I also like most of the workers. They are cool but they don't play around if you don't follow the rules.

Doreen W: Kudos to the updated skating rink. Floor is beautiful, music is good and good atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised to see the amount of people skating. There was a birthday party after our session and it was a big crowd. Look forward to having fun here again.
Response: Hey, Dee! Thank you for the great review and rating! We appreciate the kudos on the new floor! We would love to see you on the rink again soon!

Safiya Parker: Went for adult night. $10 admission, $5 rental. It was a good experience and nice to watch the different skater skills

Tasha Vaughan: I’ve been going to this rink since a child an have seen many changes for the good this is home away from home the staff are friendly an always willing to give a helping hand or just great info for new skaters to make them feel comfortable The music is great an they cater to age so if u are older the they have the throwback jams on Thursdays except the 1st Thursday of the month But over all great staff an customers Keep doing what your doing!!!!

Georgetown Waterfront Park: what do users think?


eriko p: An incredibly beautiful area to see the Potomac as well as strolling and people watching. We arrived quite early and all the waterfront restaurants were not open yet. There is a Starbucks nearby. However we were able to witness the rowers practicing this morning which was a plus! I would love to live here! The airplanes flying out of Ronald Reagan Airport can be seen and heard so that might need getting used to if I lived here! This is a 10 acre grassy park along the water. If one needs a sense of calmness and peace, come here! From the waterfront, it is easy to take one of the side streets up to M street where many of the shops and restaurants are located. We were fortunate to take a street which crosses the C & O canal!

Da-Wang Wu: Probably because it’s a cloudy day in the end of the fall, the park didn’t look as beautiful as I initially expected. However, I would love to come back in better weather and see if it’s more lively and beautiful. Since it’s very close to the canal, visitors can also plan for a walk along the canal, which is a very interesting and tranquil walk.

La Tisha Parkinson: Really lovely for a scenic night walk. We walked there on Friday night after 10pm and it was lively and felt safe because it was strategically well lit. Strategic in the sense that the lighting didn't ruin the mood but it was still illuminating. There were also a lot of restaurants on the stretch and also an AMC cinema and an ice cream truck parked nearby.

Kids Industry Prep LLC: This was the most beautiful place to visit! We made sure we got there very early! 8am. Street parking was abundant. I decided to take photos with my little model and she enjoyed the sites just as much as everyone else did that is until she had to go to the bathroom! 🤣 Luckily mom had a portable potty 🚽. We finished up with a few snapshots of her riding her bicycle with natural flowers she picked along the way. Take a look at some of the photos we took!

Nicolas Dakota: I was thinking to sale my kidney and make money for court . Lose job at 2016 ,several time by setup arrested and cause of that can not find job .I am not felony. Just couldn't pay $1500 monthly child support but keep paying $500 as I can by cutting grass for neighbors and dog walking. Anyway after walked front water this area understood life still beautiful. Recommend everyone stop by and feel atmosphere. Any advice in correct way and respect to law welcome 🙏

Wadud Safa: The best waterfront park in the DMV area. It’s always beautiful in all seasons. It’s a great place to walk with your family and friends. If you are new in town you definitely want to visit this place.

Manny G.C.: The Georgetown Waterfront Park is a national park completed in Washington, DC in the fall of 2011. Part of the Georgetown Historic District, the park stretches along the banks of the Potomac River from 31st Street, NW to the Key Bridge.

Tarang Srivastava: Very beautiful area especially in the evenings. Lots of restaurants with outdoor seating and plenty of parking nearby. The Halloween exhibits on display right now are very nice!

Tan Sav: Part of this park use to be a parking lot years ago. Definitely a nice place to walk, bike and people watch when the weather is good.

Jeovany Espino: This view of Georgetown was immaculate at night. We walked around to get this view. Well worth it
