Things to Do
Located at the southern tip of Maryland’s Prince George’s County, about 20 miles from Washington, D.C., the Accokeek Foundation at Piscataway Park provides a wealth of opportunities for unique outdoor education.
In addition to a historic farm museum that demonstrates 18th century agriculture and a certified organic farm used for demonstration and education about sustainable agriculture, the park facilities include a public fishing pier, boat dock, and two boardwalks over fresh water tidal wetlands, a variety of nature trails, meadows, and woodland areas, each with unique features.
Observe the beauty of the heritage breed livestock as they graze in pastures throughout the site. For your safety and theirs, please stay outside of enclosed pastures, and do not feed the animals.
Tour the park on foot or by bike. Your leashed pet is welcome to join you on the trails, but not inside the colonial farm exhibit area.
Begin your visit at the Visitor Center and Museum Gift Shop, enjoy a picnic in the covered pavilion, or inquire about the education center – an ideal space for group meetings and special event. Ample parking and public restrooms are available daily for visitors.
