Nationals Park Directions and Parking

Parking at Nationals Park
Unless you have reserved parking surrounding Nationals Park, Metro and Nats Express are the best way to go to the game.

Location:
Nationals Park is located in Southeast Washington along the Anacostia River bounded by South Capitol Street to the west, N Street to the north, First Street to the east and Potomac Avenue to the south.

Metro is a great way to get to the new Nationals Park.
Taking the Metro to the ballgame is a great idea! All you have to do is take the Green Line to the Navy Yard station. The Navy Yard station is just a half a block away and accommodates up to 24,000 passengers an hour. Additionally, the Metro has over 57,000 parking spaces at their Park and Ride lots. Who could ask for an easier way to get to Nationals Park?
