On The Look Out
Mayor Vincent Gray invites residents to offer feedback for playground designs in Play DC: The Playground Improvement Project. The initiative for the largest set of playground improvements in D.C. history – is a new, multi-year, citywide project that will drive the evaluation, improvement and ongoing maintenance of the playgrounds in DPR's inventory.
The design of Rose Park Recreation Center Playground will be discussed Thursday, November 29 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at Rose Park Recreation Center at 2609 Dumbarton Street in Georgetown.
The feedback sessions are taking place in two phases. The first phase – presently taking place – provides residents and children with an overview of the project and gives them an opportunity to provide feedback on what they want to see as part of the renovations for their play space. The second phase of community meetings will allow architects to present renderings of proposed playground projects based on feedback gleaned in the first round and refine their designs on the basis of further feedback.
