Washington, DC

1673 11th Street, NW via Shaw Dog Park

Thanks to a reader for passing on from the Shaw Dog Park:

“Shaw Dog Park needs YOU this Thursday, February 28, at 6 p.m. The Shaw Dog Park, Shaw Skate Park, Recreational field and Basketball courts are at risk. DC Public Schools and the Department of Parks and Rec are deciding the fate of these important shared spaces as the Shaw Junior High School transitions into Banneker High School. Is the Shaw Dog Park important to you and the community? Join us at the Phyllis Wheatley YWCA (901 Rhode Island Ave. NW, 6:00-7:30 p.m.) on Feb. 28 at a community meeting. A strong turnout from the Shaw Dog Park community is critical in helping to convey why this space is important and must be preserved!

The more attendees in support of preserving the park, the better! You are not required to speak but, if you would like, please be prepared to discuss what neighborhood you are from, why the park is important to you, and what it means for the community. Check out Save Shaw Parks for additional information about this important issue.”
