Improving the lives of people in NoMa today and for generations to come.

The NoMa Parks Foundation strives to establish welcoming, sustainable, beautiful spaces where people can play, refresh and connect in NoMa, now and in the future.

Watch presentations from the May 18 (virtual) community meeting, and give us your input on the new open spaces coming to the Florida and New York Avenue NE Intersection Project (colloquially referred to as “Dave Thomas Circle”)!

Tanner Park News:

The first part of Alethia Tanner Park is now open! The Metropolitan Branch Trail Connector is part of a wide plaza that connects the Q Street NE bike lane to the Metropolitan Branch Trail at the southern end of the park. The wide path in the middle is designed to be shared by cyclists and pedestrians.

The rest of the park will remain closed given the coronavirus health situation, and to allow the grass to grow. We hope this additional connection to the MBT helps facilitate appropriate social distancing as we all work together in support of our community and our health. Learn more about this space and its namesake, Alethia Tanner.
