New Play Surface to Be Installed at Girard Street Park

Girard park, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a pretty weak park.

So I was super happy to receive this press release:

The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) will begin installation of a new play surface in the center area of the Girard Street Park, located next to the Columbia Heights Community Center, 1480 Girard St, NW, on Monday, September 15, 2008.

DPR has worked with the local community during the planning process, and based upon this input, DPR will replace the existing natural grass play surface with a new multi-colored poured-in-place rubber play surface in the central open space of this park. The new rubber playing surface will better withstand the high use of this playground.

During the project, all work areas will be closed to the public, including the playground and seating areas. The basketball court and access to the nearby community garden will remain open, with access to both from Girard Street, NW.
