Eastern Market Metro Park Project

Eastern Market Metro Park Project

Project Overview

Eastern Market Metro Park project is the result of a 2013 community led Master Park Plan commissioned by Barracks Row Main Street that illustrated new public space improvements surrounding the Eastern Market Metro. The primary objective of this District park project is to transform the Metro Park area and surrounding DPR parkland into a safe and thriving ‘Town Square’ that supports multi-generational social activities for the historic Capitol Hill community. Other park objectives include: improved park connectivity, enhanced multi-modal transit access, and increased green infrastructure. The District will be pursuing its first ENVISION certification from the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. The ENVISION framework will help to align this project with other overarching citywide resiliency goals and demonstrate our continued commitment to building a sustainable future.
