Shaw will get “a temporary dog park set up at the corner of Rhode Island and Q, NW (south of the skateboard park).”

Thanks to Allison for passing on from the Shaw Dog Park Committee:

“Thank you to everyone who helped share your voice and concerns with DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR)! The agency informed us yesterday (March 6) that they will have a temporary dog park set up at the corner of Rhode Island and Q, NW (south of the skateboard park). That park will be ready for use starting April 1. We are told this park will have appropriate fencing and a double gate. They are still anticipating a Fall 2021 re-opening of the Shaw Dog Park at 11th and R NW.

DPR has also indicated they will reach out to the community before the end of the month to schedule a community meeting to discuss improvements to the existing dog park, as well details about the temporary park.

Thank you to everyone who reached out – your voice was heard and you made a difference! Your outreach absolutely helps to demonstrate the value of the Shaw Dog Park to the community. We also want to thank DPR for their responsiveness in the last few days.

There is no doubt that we can count this as a victory, but there is more work to do! We ask all of you to stay plugged in to our updates as this project progresses. If this can be a transparent and collaborative process, we will be able to contribute to the creation of new and wonderful amenities in our neighborhood, and advance generational green space improvements that will be enjoyed for many years to come!

We will keep you informed as we learn more and when we need your help going forward.”
