Current Operating Status

Updated July 2, 2020 at 5:12 p.m. ET

DC's Phase Two Reopening began June 22. Our parks and piers are open, Wharf Street is pedestrian-only, the Water Taxi is in service, and The Wharf Boathouse is open for kayak and paddleboard reservations. 

At The Wharf, the health and safety of our neighbors, business operators, and visitors is our top priority. The Wharf is taking extra precautions to keep our community healthy and safe. We have significantly increased our cleaning and sanitation protocols throughout our public restrooms, parks and open spaces, and parking garage to ensure they remain operational for all.

If you're coming to visit The Wharf, please:

  • Maintain six feet of physical distancing
  • Wear a mask in common areas
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Be courteous to others

Before you come to The Wharf to dine indoors or on an outdoor patio, please:

  • Call the restaurant and make a reservation
  • View the restaurant's safety protocols on their website
  • Follow the restaurant on social media for timely updates

While some restaurants are offering indoor and outdoor dining, takeout and delivery remain great options to enjoy our restaurants.
