Oxon Run Parkway

The Oxon Run Parkway was created by the National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Plans for the area started in 1926 to provide more park space for the people of Washington, D.C. The area started small, but each minuscule land purchase over the years grew it to 150 acres. Oxon Run Parkway officially became a park in 1971, and it is officially run by the National Park Service. Located near the park are Fort Dupont and Foundry Branch while the parkway has wetlands, floodplains, and forests.
