“Shaw dog park is still not open”

1651 11th Street, NW between Q and R

“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything about the reopening of the recreation facilities on 9th Street (dog park/basketball court/skate park). I have gotten no information from the ANC, the Council 1 Reps or the DC Parks Department. Looks ready to go.”

Shaw Dog Park writes: “We are working to remain in touch with @DCDPR and will share opening details when we have them.”
