Thanks to Rick for sharing this incredibly exciting news from the National Park Service:
“The National Park Service has scheduled an informational meeting on October 17, 2018 from 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at the Mt. Pleasant Library (3160 16th St NW, Washington, DC 20010) to present details about upcoming restoration work at Meridian Hill Park. Meridian Hill Park, a National Historic Landmark located at 15th St. & Euclid St., NW, Washington, DC, initially opened to the public in 1936. The newest phase of rehabilitation and restoration work, expected to start in fall 2019, will focus primarily on the park’s Lower Plaza–including
restoration of the plaza, construction of another accessible route into the park, installation of lighting, restoration of landscape vegetation, etc. As a separate project, due to a generous donation, the park will reconstruct and install the Noyes Armillary Sphere at the lower end of the plaza. Meridian Hill Park is administered by Rock Creek Park.
Location: Mt Pleasant Library 3160 16th St NW, Washington D.C.
Time: 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM”
