Sonny Bono Park needs work.
That’s why its across-the-street neighbor, Heurich House Museum, set out over the summer to raise money for the public space named for the famous singer and congressman. Next Saturday, the museum will put some of that money to work during a volunteer-led beautification day.
During the cleanup — which takes place at the intersection of New Hampshire Ave., 20th St. and O St. NW and lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. — volunteers will meet with professional gardener and artist Kellie Cox to rip out dead plants, scoop out excess soil and plant new flowers.
Though volunteers are encouraged to bring gardening gloves, tools and bottled water will be provided.

A tiny new outdoor space is coming to K Street.
The project, spearheaded by the Golden Triangle BID, will transform two parking spaces into a new seasonal “parklet” at 2020 K Street NW.
The space will include blocks that visitors can rearrange and triangle planters set at different heights.
The mini-park will officially open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Tuesday at 11:30 a.m.
