Parkland Public Meeting #2
 
Date Start Time End Time Time Zone Location
Nov 9, 2023 6:00 PM 7:30 PM Virtual

Washington , District of Columbia
The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking input as we take steps to improve a 1.25-acre park known as Parkland in Congress Heights. The public is invited to review the proposed design and share comments from Oct. 19 to Dec. 9.

This is the last opportunity for public comment.

 
Description:
The revised design reflects community needs for the park to accommodate both children and adults while preserving the existing mature tree canopy throughout the park. The plan proposes an expanded playground area; incorporating play equipment for children ages 2 through 5 years and 6 through 12 years. The plan also proposes expansion and upgrades of the plaza to accommodate daily use and permitted special events. Community garden boxes, picnic areas and grills, seating, lighting, public art, and trail connections are also features of the revised design.

The NPS anticipates construction will begin in late 2024 or early 2025. Public participation is vital to the planning process and all comments received by Dec. 9, will be considered.
