Community Park and Garden Now Open!
After months of anticipation and hard work by the DC Housing Authority staff, work crews, and our Nonprofit volunteers, construction of the community park and garden is now complete!
On May 20, 2011, D.C. Housing Authority Executive Director Adrianne Todman and Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells joined the Capitol Hill community at an opening celebration for the park and garden. Over 100 neighbors and Kentucky Courts residents attended the gathering to hear about the community-building process, learn from the designers, and watch the first garden plot lottery for the 2011 season. All applications for the 2011 growing season have been accepted.

Community Update Draws Fun and Excitement!
The DC Housing Authority hosted a "meet and greet" for the entire neighborhood on September 11, 2010. People were able to get to know the construction team working on the 13th Street Community Park and Garden and share in a neighborhood celebration. Click here for photos.
