There is one broad overlook along the river opposite the main entrance to the park, and three smaller overlooks in the western section of the park. The smaller overlooks feature granite slabs etched with historical scenes of the Georgetown waterfront.
The first, western-most overlook has scenes of the waterfront between 1870 and 1970. The second overlook has images of the Potomac River bridges near the waterfront, and highlights the role that rowing has played in the waterfront’s history. The third overlook depicts the Native Americans who navigated the Potomac River near Georgetown during the colonial period, and includes a view of the waterfront when it was a thriving commercial port.
