The neighborhood around Nationals Park in southeast Washington is one of the fastest-changing areas of the city. Another new development was unveiled Friday: Canal Park.
The outdoor space features fountains and sculptures. It also has a public ice-skating rink that will operate seven days a week. Skates can be rented for a small fee.
Canal Park is located at the intersection of Second and M streets near the Navy Yard Metro Station. It's named after a canal in the area that once connected the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers.
A restaurant with outdoor seating will open there in the next few weeks.
