an Olympic-sized swimming pool designed for recreational, fitness, and competitive aquatics—including a 10-meter diving platform. Also planned are an indoor fitness area and an indoor multi-activity center suitable for indoor field sports or community gatherings, an expanded esplanade for outdoor activities, and a fourth full-sized rectangular field.This park is a great place to go to enjoy nature and to get some exercise.
To get to Long Bridge Park, get on the trail heading south from the Iwo Jima, cross the bridge over 110, and head towards the Mt. Vernon Trail. Once you cross Washington Blvd, take the trail on the right that takes you on the east side of Washington Blvd. That trail/sidewalk will take you to Boundary Channel Dr. Then ride on Boundary Channel Dr. along the Pentagon parking lots to the obscure and dumpy-looking northern entrance to Long Bridge Park.
A longer but more scenic route is to take the Mt. Vernon Trail south to the Crystal City exit near the airport, cross under the George Washington Memorial Parkway, and then turn right on Crystal Dr. and head north. That will take you into the southern entrance to Long Bridge Park.
At times of high traffic and when many cars are entering and exiting the Pentagon parking lots, riding to Long Bridge Park via the northern entrance is likely to be treacherous. I suggest getting to the park via the southern entrance. This has the advantage of giving you about a ten-minute longer bike ride. If you need a bike, they are readily available in Rosslyn via Capital Bikeshare.
A new trail will be built along 110 heading south from the Iwo Jima. If this new trail could connect to the northern entrance to Long Bridge Park, it would provide a faster route to the park and avoid treacherous crossing of the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
