How to get there:

Parking at Theodore Roosevelt Island is tight so we are encouraging all volunteers to carpool or take public transportation.

By Car
Drivers can only reach Theodore Roosevelt Island from the northbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway. After Memorial Bridge, follow the sign to turn right into the parking lot.

Please note that you must park in a designated parking space. US Park Police regularly tickets drivers who have parked on the grass.

Alternatively, you can park in Rosslyn for just 5 bucks!

The island is a 10-15 minute walk from the Rosslyn Metro station. From the station, walk toward the Key Bridge. A short connecting trail leads downhill from the downstream side of the bridge, across the parkway, and into the parking lot at Theodore Roosevelt Island.

On Foot or by Bicycle
The northern terminus of the Mount Vernon Trail is at Theodore Roosevelt Island. A short connecting trail leads downhill from the downstream side of the Key Bridge in Virginia, across the parkway, and into the parking lot at Theodore Roosevelt Island.

Bicycles are not allowed on the island. Bicycle racks are located near the footbridge.

On Foot
The Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail passes by Theodore Roosevelt Island.
