“Alethia Tanner Park”
BETWEEN HARRY THOMAS WAY NE & THE METROPOLITAN BRANCH TRAIL
Sitting just north of New York Avenue NE in Eckington, this 2.5-acre space features an expansive green lawn, a children’s playground, a dedicated dog park, and other great amenities. The park was designed by Nelson Byrd Woltz in conjunction with community input and is part of the D.C. parks system. Check out the construction camera feed!
CORNER OF 3RD & L NE
This 8,000-square-foot parcel — named for the vanished 19th century neighborhood it sits near — includes a dog space with an agility structure, a Wallholla for children to climb on, and public seating. Designed by Lee & Associates in conjunction with community input, it is owned by the city and managed by the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation. The dog park is maintained by Friends of NoMa Dogs.
L STREET NE UNDERPASS
Lightweave, designed by FUTUREFORMS, turns vibrations from passing trains and sounds in the underpass into dynamic auroras of patterned light across four different hues and variable intensities of light.
