Hey, hey! We opened DC's newest park today! #AlethiaTannerPark, named by popular community suggestion and vote, freed herself from slavery in 1810 by selling produce in Lafayette Park. She went on to free family members and friends, and help found churches and educational institutions in DC. Proud to have worked on this amazing project. The opening was delayed by the coronavirus, but I'm so glad to have worked with many great folks to bring about another venue to celebrate community, practice civility, and exercise democracy. Run, go play! . . . #washingtondc #igdc #acreativedc #202creates #eckington #noma #nomabid #ward5 #parks #newpark #parksandrecreation #urbanpark #dcchasers #exposeddc #popville #dcist #dogpark #playground #fotodc #theotherdc #walkwithlocals #mydccool #washmagphoto #dc #leslieknope #reallifeleslieknope @dcdpr @noma.bid @dcdgs @eckingtonparks @forresterconstruction @nelsonbyrdwoltz @studio27arch @jtruxdc @jub_rogers
