In September of 2020 the NoMa Parks Foundation acquired 1100 Third Street NE, at the northwest corner of Third and L streets NE. The vacant property, which consists of 5,800 square feet of land will be combined with adjacent DC-owned public space to create an 8,400 square foot park in this sun-graced spot. It is located directly north of the well-loved Swampoodle Park (8,200 square feet) on the southwest corner of 3rd and L streets NE. The name “Swampoodle Terrace” was chosen in a community nomination and voting process.

Alethia Tanner Park
Between Harry Thomas Way NE & The Metropolitan Branch Trail
Sitting just north of New York Avenue NE in Eckington at 227 Harry Thomas Way NE, 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.
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.
