New Dog Friendly Park opens in NoMa

The NoMa neighborhood in WDC is home to the region’s newest green space, Swampoodle Park. Named for its location, North of Massachusetts Avenue, NoMa has been lacking a park until now. Being on the cutting edge of some of the newest and most modern developments, the addition of a park has made this neighborhood an even better place to explore and experience, especially for dog lovers.

As noted in an article published by DC Curbed, Swampoodle park is pet friendly with a dedicated area for dogs. In addition to providing a play area for our four-legged friends, there’s an excellent climbing structure for young kids which also adds an artistic flair to the park. This vertical climbing structure is the first of its kind in WDC, the “wall-holla” allows for many children to play within a compact space, making the best use of a limited area while allowing for plenty of fun.

The park itself is located at the corner of 3rd and L Streets NE and covers 8,000 square feet next to the Loree Grande development. The land was purchased by the NoMa BID from a city grant and was designed through a focus of community input with the goal of providing the area with a green space for residents and visitors alike. While NoMa is a great urban village with top-quality amenities like the Union Market gourmet food marketplace, the lack of a park was a notable missing aspect.

In case you were wondering, the name of the park comes from an old nickname given to the area back in the 1800s. Tiber Creek used run through the area and flood often from rainstorms creating a swampy area full of puddles. At the time the area was home to a large population of Irish who started calling it Swampoodle. While the creek is gone and flooding not so much of a problem any longer, the name pays homage to the past of this now revitalized neighborhood.

If you haven’t been to NoMa yet, or it’s been a while now’s a great time to check it out. Beyond the new Swampoodle Park and Union Market, there’s the National Postal Museum, the National Branch Trail, perfect for a great jog, the NPR headquarters which you can tour for free, and a variety of locally made distilled spirits are available at several distilleries.
