8th St Arts Park

A dynamic community space on 8th Street NE in Brookland / Edgewood!

Dance Place, along with a dedicated volunteer Steering Committee, has transformed the empty alley between the Brookland Artspace Lofts and our newly renovated building into the 8th St Arts Park! With a dedicated staff, unique creative design, gardens, public art commissions and 100% FREE programming, the 8th St Arts Park serves as a national model for creative placemaking and building community. Leading the charge for responsible revitalization, our Arts Park is the first community park in Brookland / Edgewood NE DC built by neighbors, for neighbors.

The Arts Park is funded in part by the Department of Energy and Environment.
