Waterfront Park is located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria at 1A Prince Street. Waterfront Park is a peaceful respite with a statue of a shipbuilder, old anchors, and a monument to fallen policemen. The new Waterfront Park combines the original King Street Park and Waterfront Park sites with the sites of the former Old Dominion Boat Club building and parking lot to create a seamless transition between Old Town’s historic retail corridor and the water.
The park features an open plaza, a waterfront promenade, shade structures, boat docking, open lawn space, riverfront seating, walking trails and modular space that can adapt to different purposes throughout the year.
The park also features “Mirror Mirror,” a new sound-responsive, interactive public art installation. Commissioned by the city, the 25-foot diameter, eight-foot-tall installation responds to sound with illuminated color, bathing visitors in rainbow-hued light as they talk, sing, and play.
