In addition to the good work that The Friends of 16th St. Heights Parks has done through our partnership with the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, we have also been working with Greater DC Cares, Capitol City Little League, Urban Soccer Initiative, to bring even more improvements to our parks. We are also proud to note that our organization sponsored buses for the children who attend the FREE DPR summer camp at Hamilton and Upshur Parks so that they could take two field trips,

If you would like to see these types of events and improvements continue at Upshur and Hamilton Parks, then please show your support by attending our fundraiser on September 25th! Join friends and neighbors at the beautiful Intown Uptown Inn and enjoy great food provided by Fusion Indian Restaurant and drink provided by Cork-N-Bottle. And we have some really fantastic auction items this year, including a stay at a house in Brazil, a villa in Belize (sleeps 12!), an Inn in Jackson Hole, 5 nights at the Marriott Waikiki Resort and cocktails with the DC Housewives cast!

  • i have been to a bunch of Friends of 16th Street Heights parks events (they are working to improve two parks in my neighborhood, and my boy loves his playground time). these parks (Upshur and Hamilton) just keep getting better, thanks to the work Friends do (and the DPR attention they have leveraged).

  • It’s nice to see you highlighting your lovely neighbors, 16th Street Heights! With all of your Dupont and Forest Hills photos lately, I thought you might have forgotten about this beautiful, diverse and less posh neighborhood! (I’d also love to see a 16th Street Heights house get featured now and again… it seems like it’s been forever, and there really are some gems!)
