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.
Alethia Tanner Park
Between Harry Thomas Way NE & The Metropolitan Branch Trail
Corner of 3rd & L St 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.
Swampoodle Park II
Corner of 3rd & L NE
The NoMa Parks Foundation (NPF) purchased this 8,400-square-foot parcel directly across L Street NE from Swampoodle Park in September 2020. NPF looks forward to working with the community and DC government agency partners to deliver the perfect bookend to complement Swampoodle Park and bring yet another remarkable new park to NoMa for the community to share and enjoy for years to come.
