Say Hello to Swampoodle Park


The new park coming to 3rd and L Street NE has a name. It's going to be called Swampoodle Park. Swampoodle was the name of a 19th century Irish neighborhood near where the park stands today. Swampoodle Park will consist of roughly 8,000 square feet, part of that falling within the public right-of-way. Per the NoMa Parks Foundation, the completed "park will include plantings and gathering spaces; a vertical play structure designed for children ages five and up; and a large space for dogs to run and play, complete with a dog agility ramp." Construction was to be completed by November, but is still ongoing due to delays. They are now shooting for January.

Doubtful, but if tents are your thing you might want to check out the climate controlled pavilion at nearby Wunder Garten.

Should be ready to enjoy before the warm weather comes in spring.
