Piscataway Park Information

Piscataway Park is beloved for its bald eagle, deer, and fox wildlife, and includes fishing piers, boardwalks, and National Colonial Farm.

Two hundred years ago, George Washington described Mount Vernon by saying, "No estate in the United America is more pleasantly situated than this." Today, the breathtaking view of the Maryland fields and hillsides across the Potomac River look much as they did in Washington's time. Piscataway Park was established in 1961 as a pilot project in the use of easements to protect parklands from obtrusive urban expansion. Today, Piscataway Park covers approximately 5,000 acres and stretches for six miles from Piscataway Creek to Marshall Hall on the Potomac River.
