Here’s the Final Design Concept for Potomac Avenue Triangle Parks Recommended by ANC6B
by Larry Janezich
Tuesday night, ANC6B voted unanimously to support the design concept for two triangle parks on Potomac Avenue SE, between 12th and 13th Streets. Following through on work started by her ANC predecessor (Daniel Chao), Aimee Grace organized a group of stakeholders who were successful in persuading CM Charles Allen to find $500,000 in the current FY Budget to upgrade the parks.
This spring/summer, the Department of General Services will hire a design-build company to produce construction drawings, obtain permits, and get regulatory approvals.
Actual construction is expected to start in the fall of 2018.

Perhaps I’m a bit curmudgeonly, but the splash pad looks like an unneeded expense. I bet that little bit of plumbing requires more upkeep and maintenance than the remainder of the parks in total. I would love to see a bit more frugality on the part of our elected officials.
If that splash pad keeps people from opening fire hydrants, it is worth it.
Seating, tables are not ugly enough.
Not only ugly, the don’t look right for a family setting. Where do the adults hang out, stash the junk? And WHO maintains the park?
So no more dog park?? Not cool…why should we have to go all the way to Arlington to have a safe/open space to let dogs run?!
