The National Park Service, the District of Columbia, and the Downtown Business Improvement District (Partners) together are collectively committed to transform Franklin Park into an active, flexible, sustainable, and historic urban park connected to its community. Franklin Park, at five acres, is one of the largest NPS square in Center City DC and therefore provides a unique opportunity to serve the community and enhance urban living. Currently the park does not meet today's diverse urban needs; however, the Partners see the potential to transform Franklin Park into one of our nation's premier urban parks based on lessons learned from national models.
To implement these goals, the Partners are moving forward with a planning effort for Franklin Park which includes: comprehensive planning, development of conceptual design alternatives, budgets, operations and maintenance plans, an environmental assessment (EA) and Section 106 consultation.
