As part of a renewed focus on the Anacostia River for the city of Washington, D.C., MPFP is working with a multidisciplinary team to transform an area of industrial waterfront into a vibrant, world-class park that will serve the City’s residents well into the future. The park will provide a unique nexus between the river, active and passive recreation, commercial interests and local residents. It is one of four primary urban waterfront destinations in the Nation’s Capital and is just a few minutes walk away from the Washington National ballpark. It will also become an important punctuation in the broader waterfront experience as 20 Miles of Anacostia Riverwalk and Trail are developed. MPFP’s approach seeks for Southeast Federal Center Park to be unique by responding to broader goals, such as: diversity in program; dynamic in form; integration of public and private; and a balance between development and nature.
