Large Gazebo being built at Bruce Monroe Park

3000 Georgia Ave, NW

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“There’s a new structure going up at Bruce Monroe park. A large gazebo perhaps.”

Must be part of the $200,000 for Improvements we heard about in April 2013? Think a gazebo is a good addition for the park?

Still waiting to hear about the “NDC-developed mixed-use building on the eastern third of the site, comprising 88-175 apartments up to 1,000 square feet, 17,000-26,000 square feet of retail space”…

Also, Side Note: Found this old photo from the archives – what it used to look like – the old school back in 2008:

  • I love this park! It gets better every year. I just wish that the giant gang/crew tag on the side of the rowhouse that butts up to it would be removed.

      Agreed! This park is a gem. There’s always lots of people there, usually doing wholesome things. I like the gazebo too!

      I think the person who owns that house probably has to request that the graffiti be removed, and they do not seem to be in a hurry to do that.

  • As a resident of this block I am so tired of it being covered with trash, fences broken, etc. Have a little respect. It’s a complete eye sore. If people can’t take care of their public spaces, then they don’t deserve to have them. Bring on the development.

  • It seems like the community activists, representatives, etc. want this to stay as a park… but silently I’m thinking that if development of this park could do for southern Park View and Pleasant Plains what the Harrison Square development helped do for U Street, I’d be all for it.
