From NoMa Parks:
“NoMa’s first park is under construction at 3rd and L streets NE, and 123 submissions from hundreds of community members have been narrowed to three final names. Please vote! The proposed names are: Swampoodle Park, Old City Corner, and 3rd and L Park. The first two were popular in the community submission process this summer; the latter has been the working name throughout the park’s development and was also suggested in the community submission process. Please view signage mock-ups with each name and take the survey here. The final contender will be recommended to the DC Council and the Mayor, who will make the ultimate decision.
The park at 3rd and L is an 8,000-square-foot space that will include plantings and gathering spaces; a vertical play structure designed for children ages 5 and up; and a space for dogs to run and play, complete with a dog agility ramp. It is built on the first parcel purchased by the NoMa Parks Foundation, which held multiple community meetings and received input from the public for two years to design the space to meet the neighborhood’s needs.

A friend of the family passes on from GoFundMe:
“My Mom’s 6-year old Pomapoo Nacho needs fusion surgery for his right ankle. He was injured somehow while at doggy daycare – probably just a freak accident. He is my Mom’s most constant companion since my Dad died two years ago and has cured her loneliness. Nacho and Mom love taking long walks together, but haven’t been able to since this happened in late July. It’s taken so much time and money just to figure out what is wrong and what can be done and Mom is just trying to get by. She’s used credit cards and everything because she can’t give up on him.
