Herbert Wells Ice Rink
To Wells Via I-295:
Proceed over the Wilson Bridge and stay in the right lane. Take the I-295 exit (right lane exit after crossing the bridge) to Washington, DC. As you approach exit 4, stay in the left two lanes and follow the signs that read "To 95N/To 50" (Do not take the exit which goes to I-395). It is at this point that I-295 becomes DC-295. As DC-295 ends the road divides into four lanes. The left two lanes go to the BW Parkway and the far right lane to 50. Stay in the 2nd lane from the right and follow the signs to Kenilworth Avenue, MD-201, North. Continue on Kenilworth Avenue, you will cross Bladensburg Road, MD 450; East/West Highway, MD 410 and; River Rd which is on your left. About 4/10 of a mile past River Rd., make a left turn onto Paint Branch Parkway (It is Good Luck Road on the right). Rink is on your left about 1/2 mile.

To return to Alexandria from Wells you must use a slightly different route since you cannot get to I-295 southbound from Kenilworth Ave.
