NatsLive Free Postgame Concert Series presents Thompson Square on Saturday and Third Day on Sunday.

Capitol RiverGreen Mini Golf Hole at National Building Museum

Posted on June 28, 2013

This summer, the National Building Museum's popular indoor Mini Golf exhibition will include a Capitol Riverfront hole that reflects this year's theme of "Building the Future."  Capitol RiverGreen is one of the mini golf holes featured in the course, in which vertical image panels rise up like buildings in the Capitol Riverfront and Yards neighborhood.
 
Stroll around the golf hole to see the vision come together in this rapidly developing part of Washington, DC, located between the U.S. Capitol and the Anacostia River. Putt your ball along M Street SE, or try for a hole-in-one over the Yards Park sculptural pedestrian bridge. Crowds will cheer when you make it to home plate in the ballpark!
 
Capitol RiverGreen is sponsored by Capitol Riverfront BID and The Yards, and was designed by Shalom Baranes Associates and built by Winmar Construction. Additional contributors are ABC Printing & Graphics, Forest City Washington, Herip Associates, Interface Multimedia, and Ken Foran.
 
Designed for ages 4 and up, the one-of-a-kind courses are located in air-conditioned comfort during Museum hours from Memorial Day, May 27th, to Labor Day, September 2nd.
