The 11th Street Bridge Park will physically connect both sides of the Anacostia River. It’s a 1,200-foot-long, pedestrian-only expanse that will let people stroll between Capitol Hill and Anacostia. The big question is whether it will socially connect them.
“You have water, you have park on one side, you have blue sky above and it’s a space in this urban environment where you have a little breathing room – it’s good for your soul.”
