“Dear PoPville,

For the last few Tuesdays we have been hearing extremely loud noises, sort of like short explosions or shotguns, coming from Rock Creek Park (near Adams Morgan/Kalorama/the horse stables). Any idea what is going on? It is making our dog freak out!”

Maybe it’s related to what a member of the Cleveland Park listserv wrote:

“Once again, those of us who live adjacent to the Zoo were treated to a dawn wake-up call of workers making non-stop noise on the service road. This time, it appears to have been multiple leaf blowers (or something similar with hoses and loud motors switching on/off) going up and down the road, lasting from around 5:15AM until at least 6:50AM. These activities not only broke the law re: permitted start time for non-emergency work, they showed utter disregard for the nearby community.”

Anyone else hearing loud noises from the park?
