I was running in Rock Creek Park on Sunday when I came across some young adults swimming/frolicking in the creek. I began to wonder just how dangerous this activity might be in terms of health? I have the perception that you should not enter Rock Creek under any circumstances but I don’t really know the truth.
This is especially concerning as I would like my young children to be able to explore Rock Creek Park as much as possible but not at the risk of their health. Can they pick up rocks, play in the sand, wade in the water?
Would love to hear from those who actually have the data and know the science, not just from those with perceptions…can you help me get to the bottom of this?
Not sure about the safety by the National Park Service says:
“All Rock Creek Park areas are closed to swimming, bathing and wading by people and pets.”
