Hill Now: NoMa Parks Plan Shown on New Website
NoMa is growing fast but has no public parks — yet.
A website launched this week shows where parks are being planned in the neighborhood and how locals can engage in the process.
The NoMa Parks Foundation site shows green spaces envisioned, including Pepco Park — a two-acre plot of land owned by Pepco, north of New York Avenue, near the Metropolitan Branch Trail. That space could provide room for grilling, a garden or an amphitheater, the site says.
Designs for L Street Plaza are also shown. NPF says that space east of 1st and L streets NE could provide room for farmers markets and festivals.
