Beach Drive for people, all year round!

This action is no longer active. Please visit our action center for current actions you can take.

Some fantastic news for your Wednesday afternoon:

The National Park Service announced that Beach Drive will be open for people all year round. 

This is an unqualified win for everyone who loves to spend time in Rock Creek Park. Your petition signatures, your letters, and your presence out on Beach Drive made this possible. Thank you for speaking up. 

This huge step forward for a connected regional network of bikeable, walkable spaces is the result of years of work from WABA staff and coalition partners like the People’s Alliance for Rock Creek Park. You can read the full details on the announcement here.

Now we need your help to keep this momentum up.  Can you make a donation to WABA today so we can keep so we can win even more beautiful green places to walk and bike?

After that—it’s 70 degrees and sunny. Get out and celebrate with a ride in your park!
