At the end of September, the NoMa Parks Foundation announced its purchase of a vacant lot to create a sister park to Swampoodle Park across the street. Now, a design concept is on the table.
This week, the Commission of Fine Arts will review a proposed design for "Swampoodle II", furnished by Lee and Associates. Located at the southwest corner of Third and L Streets NE (map), the park will be 8,400 square feet in size and have access on both streets.
The entrance at L Street will incorporate an amphitheater with stepped seating, and the interior of the park will include pavers arranged in patterns and green turf areas. A "repurposed boxcar" will be installed on-site as storage for games and other public amenities and activities, and/or for vending. A portion of the fence along L Street will also serve as a green wall.
The NoMa Parks Foundation held a public presentation event Monday evening. Additional renderings are below.
