The Accokeek Foundation at Piscataway Park is at 3400 Bryan Point Road, Accokeek, Maryland 20607.
Located at the southern tip of Maryland’s Prince George’s County, about 10 miles from Washington, D.C., through its colonial living history museum, organic farm, heritage breed animals, agricultural and stewardship programs, and gardens, the Accokeek Foundation provides a wealth of opportunities for unique outdoor education.
To complement the surroundings, Piscataway Park has, in addition to 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.
