Ft. Totten Park

From a press release:

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will be joined by D.C. Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie for a walking tour of Fort Totten Park, owned by the National Park Service (NPS), Today, October 4, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. beginning near the Fort Totten Metro Station. Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Angel Alston will also join the tour. Norton is visiting the park in response to complaints from D.C. residents about a spike in violent muggings in the park.

“NPS parks have a generally good reputation for safety, but law and order have broken down at Fort Totten Park,” Norton said. “Its dark paths are and should be handy to residents but off limits to criminals. D.C. residents have every right to feel safe in the city’s parks and NPS has an obligation to do what is necessary to make a walk through the park as safe as possible.”
