Harrison Park Playground and Rec Center Opening Very Soon on V Street UPDATE: Opens Tomorrow Afternoon!


Next up on awesome DPR park renovations – Harrison Playground and rec center:

“The design for Harrison plays on the musical history of neighboring U Street, featuring musical themes in the walkways and play spaces and in a musical instrument-themed mist station, designed to keep kids cool in the summer. In addition to updating the equipment for younger children and older children, DPR and DGS will install a multi-purpose backstop on the small sport court; the backstop includes a soccer goal and a basketball rim! Visitors of all ages will be able to relax on new seating: a seat wall around the water feature and picnic benches under the trees that are currently outside of the fence, but will be included in the space in the redesign.”

DPR tells me that the opening is “literally days away”!

Just got an update from DPR – it’s opening tomorrow afternoon!
