Near the end of King St is the Waterfront Park area, lovely old style river boat parked up and lots of places to wander around, drink and get a great view across the Potomac river, well worth a visit.

When touring through Alexandria in the Summer, head down King Street until you get to the water. There you will find this shady park with benches to relax and enjoy the views.

This park is tiny but it's a good place to stretch your legs and watch some birds and ducks. there is a small dock for a boat, some benches to sit on and an old cannon or two. I like the views over the river.
