Park open and will be dedicated on Friday

Removing fences

Last Friday the fences came down and the new Park at LeDroit finally opened.

DCPS closed Gage-Eckington Elementary School in 2008 and the process began to transform the site into something other than a vacant building. Now, three years later, the park is open.

Though the playground, garden plots, and walking paths are open, please stay off the fenced-off field so the grass can take root.  The dog park is expected to open in the coming days.

Mayor Gray will attend the official dedication on Friday at 12:30.
