In response to a Dupont listerv question:
“The Heurich House Museum has just adopted the park and will be taking over care and maintenance of the Sonny Bono Park.
In a somewhat mixed blessing, at the beginning of the season, someone (not us) cleared out the old plantings, added a bunch of topsoil, and added new grass and plants. While it was helpful to have the old plantings and bushes removed, the soil and plant addition were not done properly, which is why they look the way they do today.
We have a wonderful garden planned for the space, and will be started to clear the property soon to make way for the new work.”
From an email:
“If people want to donate, they can send us checks (1307 New Hampshire Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036) or donate on our website (www.heurichhouse.org) and add a note that they are directing the donation to Sonny Bono Park. We will also be creating a Kickstarter-type website for donations that should launch within the next 2 weeks.”
