Parks & Art

Mount Vernon Triangle has high quality, well-landscaped and tree lined streets with inviting outdoor seating. The K Street Streetscape acts as a main street for the neighborhood, and the 5th & K Street Plaza and Milian Park at 5th and Mass provide inviting public spaces for our Farmers Market and community events. MVT has five National Park Service pocket parks and one DC park that are used for relaxation, eating lunch, walking dogs and play. Over the years, more than 80 new trees and hundreds of spring blooming bulbs have been planted in the community, thanks in part to grants from Casey Trees and from our active residential communities. Mount Vernon Triangle is also committed to encouraging public art in both temporary and permanent installations.

Mount Vernon Triangle currently has five permanent works of public art and one temporary mural installation within the community:
