The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is starting the process of creating a new parks master plan called Ready 2 Play D.C. This plan will be a vision to guide DPR in their work for the next 20 years. Right now, DPR staff are gathering information about what different parks need, and we want to help!
We know you know about your local parks and what makes them great, but we challenge you to go and visit a new park this month and tell us what you think. How is it different from your usual park? What do you like or not like about it? Is there something this park has that you think would be good in your park? Is there something your park has that you think could benefit the park you visited?
The only rule is that the park must be DC owned (because it is a DC plan). You can find a map of all District parks here. Need some ideas on where to start? Check out this Greater Greater Washington article about local small parks and plazas or our updated Fall Colors Map!
