Help Shape a NoMa Park!

The NoMa Parks Foundation is ecstatic to be named a finalist in the KaBOOM! Play Everywhere Challenge! The Play Everywhere Challenge is a $1 million national competition that will award outside-the-box ideas to make play easy, available, and fun for kids and families in cities across the U.S. The Challenge is hosted by KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all children, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.

The NoMa Parks Foundation was selected as a finalist out of a pool of more than 1,000 applications nationwide. Winners will be announced in early fall, 2016. To learn more about the NoMa Parks Foundation's entry, click here, and to help shape the design, visit ImagineNoMaParks.org.
All the Gnomes Have Homes

Thanks to all who participated in our #GNoMaGO challenge. We decided to have an IRL ("in real life") adventure in the midst of the PokemonGO madness, and it was a blast! The week long hunt for gnomes and their mushroom dwellings was a fun and fast-paced way for people to explore the NoMa neighborhood. All the gnomes have homes with our awesome winning participants. The hunt was a great success thanks to all of our sponsors: REI, Roti Modern Mediterranean, Seoul Spice, and Wunder Garten.

Left Side. Right Side. United Outside.

In one of the most heated political races in recent history, REI is marking the opening of its DC Flagship store this fall with the United Outside campaign. 100 days of outdoor recess are dedicated to the belief that in the outdoors we can all find common ground. You can find detailed information and registration for Free Weekend and all of the other REI events at unitedoutside.com.

August's Family Film Night: Zootopia

Bring the kiddos out for Family Film Night the third Tuesday of each month. On August 16, we'll be showing Zootopia. Hop on over to NoMa for an adventure the whole family will love!

We've changed location this year, so don't forget that all movies, including Family Film Nights, will be shown at NoMa Junction @ Storey Park. Films start at sunset but arrive early to enjoy food trucks, music, games and giveaways. All NoMa BID events are free and open to the public.

NoMa by the Numbers

The Census Bureau published a report in 2015 examining the demographic profile of rail-accessible neighborhoods in the Washington Metro. The report defines rail-accessible neighborhoods as blocks within a half mile of a Metro Station. Young workers, especially in the 25 to 34 year-old age group, disproportionately reside in rail-accessible neighborhoods in both the District and its surrounding counties. This difference increased from 2006-2008 to 2011-2013, with the 25 to 34 year-old age group living in rail-accesible neighborhoods increasing 8 percent, in the District, and the rest of population living in rail-accessible neighborhoods decreasing slightly. NoMa is representative of this trend with a residential population that is younger than the District as a whole.
