Park open and will be dedicated on Friday
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.
