Where is the 11th Street Bridge Park?

Location of the 11th Street Bridge Park

The 11th Street Bridge Park will be built on the original pillars of the old road bridge crossing the Anacostia river between wards 6, 7, and 8.


Transforming old bridges into new civic spaces

The 11th Street Bridge Park will reuse the old bridge piers and span between wards 6, 7 and 8.

We have had nearly 200 meetings with nearby community residents, business owners and government leaders soliciting programming ideas. The community has asked for: an environmental education center, performance spaces, public art that tells the rich history of the region, inclusive play spaces, urban agriculture, and kayak & canoe launches. All of these ideas will be incorporated into the nationwide design competition.

Get Involved!

To make the park a reality, we need your help.
