Description

Jones Point is a geographic point on the Potomac River which is part of the city of Alexandria, Virginia, United States. The Jones Point lighthouse and a small park are located at the point, which is immediately North of the confluence of Hunting Creek and the Potomac River. The 1791-1792 survey of the boundaries of the District of Columbia began at a spot that was then at the tip of a cape at the Point. The south cornerstone from the boundary survey remains in a seawall several yards south of the lighthouse.The Woodrow Wilson Bridge crosses the point, most of which is under the protection of the National Park Service.Jones Point underwent a major renovation that was completed in 2012. The newly renovated park highlights many of its historical aspects through small National Park Service placards that appear along the walking and biking trails. The renovations feature ample parking lots, basketball court, playground, concession stand, restrooms, new walking and bike paths, small fishing/sightseeing piers, and easy access to the Jones Point lighthouse.
