NoMa Parks Foundation Seeks Community Input to Name Two Parks

August 11, 2017


You’ve supported the efforts to bring parks to NoMa — now it’s time to name two of the forthcoming parks!

The NoMa Parks Foundation is seeking community input to name the 2.5-acre green space north of New York Avenue (known as “NoMa Green”), and a smaller park at the corner of 3rd and L streets NE (known as 3rd and L Park). Neighbors and community members are encouraged to propose names at through August 25. At the website, you’ll find helpful documents for each park, including images of the designs, neighborhood history, and some questions to consider as you brainstorm names.

Suggested names will be narrowed to four or five options, then released again for a community vote. The final selections will be recommended to the D.C. Council and Mayor Muriel Bowser, who will make the ultimate decision on the name for these new public parks that will serve all District residents and visitors.

Get your creative juices flowing and help identify a welcoming name that will stand the test of time!
