A brand new three-and-a-half acre park has made its debut in Washington, D.C.’s Southwest Waterfront neighborhood. As part of The Wharf, the Waterfront Park is dedicated to Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. Norton has served as a dedicated representative for the District for more than 14 years and has been a long-time supporter of the redevelopment of the neighborhood.

The park was designed by Landscape Architecture Bureau with the assistance of a group of 35 Southwest residents. According to a press release, the park boasts rows of willow trees, winding paved paths, a children's play area, bocce courts, and views of East Potomac Park and the Washington Channel.
