Vote on the Final Name for NoMa's First Park

NoMa's first park is under construction at 3rd and L streets NE, and 123 submissions from hundreds of community members have been narrowed to three final names. Please vote! The proposed names are: Swampoodle Park, Old City Corner, and 3rd and L Park. View signage mock-ups with each name and take the survey here. The final contender will be recommended to the D.C. Council and the Mayor, who will make the ultimate decision.

The park at 3rd and L is an 8,000-square-foot space that will include plantings and gathering spaces; a vertical play structure for children; and a space for dogs to run and play. It's built on the first parcel purchased by the NoMa Parks Foundation, which held community meetings for two years to design the space to meet the neighborhood’s needs. Blue Skye Construction, a District-based small business, is currently building the park. Construction is expected to conclude in January. On completion, the park will be owned by the D.C. government, and the dog park will be maintained by Friends of NoMa Dogs. More information about the park can be found here.


But First, Coffee: Peet's Is Open

The first Peet's Coffee location in Northeast D.C. is now open at 1275 First St. NE. Be sure to stop by frequently this Thanksgiving week: there will be a different promotion or giveaway each day.

Also: Donate PJs for D.C. Youth / Wunder Garten Opens Early on Wednesday / Small Business Saturday

PAJAMA-RAMA: Since 2010, District resident Kathleen Jackson has run the DC Holiday Pajama Drive, which asks for the gift of new pajamas to give to youth in D.C.'s foster care system. Through Dec. 16, the BID is participating with a box for your donations in the lobby at 1200 First St. NE. Thanks in advance for your contribution!

TUR-KEGGING: Wunder Garten will open at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve. Kick off the long holiday weekend with your friends and associates and a favorite brew — it should be mild enough to enjoy the beer garden's outdoor space.
