The Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St.) playground will soon be renovated, the Northwest Current reports. On November 15, Mayor Vincent Gray announced that one million dollars in city funds had been allocated for upgrades to the tot lot. The effort is part of a District upgrade initiative called “Play DC”; a total of 40 playgrounds either have been or will be renovated under the program, the Current reports.
Though plans for Guy Mason’s play area have not yet been created, Dan Melman, president of the nonprofit Friends of Guy Mason booster group, told the paper that improvements might include equipment for older kids and better physical accessibility for all.
DPR will hold three community meetings to gather citizen input into the playground’s design, according to a notice posted on the Glover Park Yahoo newsgroup. The first of these is scheduled for Wednesday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Guy Mason.
