Already, people who love green spaces should be able to fall in love with the nation’s capital. There are so many parks and public areas to choose from, from Meridian Hill Park to Rock Creek Park. In the coming years, residents and tourists alike will be able to find even more parks along with heavily refurbished ones.
Below, Curbed DC has mapped 12 D.C. area park projects that are in varying stages of design and development, from Noma Green, which hasn’t started construction just yet, to 11th Street Bridge Park, which isn’t expected to complete until 2019. The mapped locations have been listed geographically from the most north to the most south. Know of another park project on the way? Let us know in the comments.
