April 1 Update: DC Parks and Recreation says that a June ribbon-cutting is scheduled for the opening of this new dog park.
Luis snapped this photo today while walking Lupe. The DC Department of Parks and Recreation is working on the new dog park in East Dupont at the triangle of 17th-New Hampshire and S Streets NW. (Online info and drawings here at DPR Web site.)
I have not heard anything new on the opening date other than “spring.” Anyone know anything more about a specific date?
BTW, what do we call it? Is it the “17th Street Dog Park?”
