Eckington Parks & Arts

Eckington Parks & Arts is an action-oriented nonprofit, philanthropic group that supports and activates Eckington’s public spaces. It is composed of members who contribute either time or monetary resources toward beautifying and activating public spaces in the Northeast D.C. neighborhood of Eckington. Although independent from the Eckington Civic Association (ECA), the two groups work collaboratively to engage neighbors and build our sense of community.

MISSION

Our goal is to establish an action-oriented nonprofit, philanthropic group to support and activate Eckington’s public spaces.

COMMUNITY

The group will be composed of members who contribute either time or monetary resources toward beautifying and activating public spaces in Eckington.

EVENTS

We plan to host at least 3 events in 2021, and grow to host additional events in future years, both at Tanner Park and at other Eckington green spaces.

GREEN SPACES

In 2021, our focus will still be on Tanner Park; however, we will begin to extend our efforts to include the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT). In future years, we will expand to Harry Thomas Recreational Center and other Eckington green spaces.

Eckington Parks & Arts is part of Green Spaces For DC

Green Spaces for DC envisions equitable access to parks and open spaces that enhance the health and well-being of neighborhoods and our D.C. Metro Area community.

About

ALETHIA TANNER PARK

In December 2015, the NoMa Parks Foundation acquired two acres of vacant land from Pepco. As envisioned in the NoMa Parks 2012 Public Realm Design Plan,  the park originally called “NoMa Green” will provide for outdoor recreation and community gatherings and serve as NoMa’s “backyard.” In May 2016, an additional half-acre of park space was acquired at the northeast corner, allowing for the softening of the R Street NE Z-turn on the Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT). These transactions earned the NoMa Parks Foundation a “Best Community Impact” award as part of the Washington Business Journal’s Best Real Estate Deals of 2016. The NoMa Parks Foundation worked with the community during 2016 and 2017 to design the park, which opened in early 2019.
