The 11th Street Bridge Park will be DC’s first elevated park, stitching together neighborhoods long-divided by the Anacostia River in the southeast quadrant of the city.

The 11th Street Bridge Park (Bridge Park) is a project of the nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River and the DC government, whose partnership ensures that the park meets a diverse set of social, health, environmental, and economic goals. The Bridge Park team has led their work with a strong focus on equity by engaging with hundreds of community members to develop an Equitable Development Plan that addresses how cities can make smart investments in communities to ensure longtime residents can stay and thrive in their neighborhoods. To that end, the team has raised over $1.5 million to implement the plan and is working with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC). LISC recently announced a $50 million Elevating Equity initiative that makes direct investment to organizations working toward equity in the Bridge Park’s impact area.
