You’ve probably heard all about the tremendous clean-up effort around the Navy Yard. This is the area in Southeast DC where you can find Nationals Park.   One of my co-workers pointed me to JD Land, the website of a local resident who covers this “Near Southeast DC Redevelopment” in great detail.

NBC4 posts a rather useful PDF showing where to park if you really must drive to the stadium. They have several articles covering Nationals Park.

Since I take the Metro to work and read the Express every morning, I noticed an article covering walking distances from several nearby Metro stops that gives approximate walking times to Nationals Park. (Note: The original print version shows more of the streets near the stadium)

Over the next several weeks, we will be defining the scope of the Clean Up DC project.  As one of our main goals, we plan to develop a network of organizations within the DC area that support in one of the following capacities:

Community service projects
Charitable organizations
Public works development
Park planning and clean up projects

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to become involved:

Both individuals and organizations are welcome.


The idea behind CleanUpDC.org is simple.
We have several goals:

  • Develop a common portal for Washington, DC residents to learn about community projects
  • Empower anyone with motivation to drive service projects within the DC area
  • Track progress of ongoing projects
  • Notify locals of community events that make DC a better place to live

At the moment, this site is nothing more than a concept. But with the spirit of like-minded, caring individuals, we can turn this idea into a living forum, developed and maintained by people like you.
