Cushing at M, Looking South (see more)

It took me a while to get there, but I finally visited the Yards Park after dark last night, with camera in hand (but not a tripod, so be forewarned about the quality of some of the shots). I think the biggest surprise was how much of a presence Nationals Park is, from its lights to the sounds of the crowd cheering (and they had a lot to cheer about last night). I didn't stay around to watch the final ballpark Friday Night Fireworks of 2010 from the Yards, but I have no doubt that it's a great vantage point, and will be there in April 2011 to check it out myself.

I was also there last night. I had hoped that the light tower would be a bit brighter than it was. Not so much of a beacon as it could be for the park.

It is really beautifully at night! Great pics!

BTW - the dog owners letting your dogs run free on the west lawn/west side of the bridge and letting them go into the 'wading pool' could you stop before they ban all dogs from the park? If you want a dog park use the dog run or go to Va Ave Park. It is not Forest City's fault there isn't a 'dog park' - did anyone petition FCE for one? Please don't use the park as your personal dog park. :)

Your photos are really good. I love the lights at night it makes the park looks more beautiful than in day.

Was walking down there last night. A lot of garbage in the Anacostia is piling up in the "Mouth" of the park under the bridge. This clearly might have been an unforseen problem.

They bring a skimmer in pretty frequently to clean it up. Even did it while the ribbon cutting was happening.
