Franklin Park Renovation
Coming Summer 2021
A partnership between the National Park Service and the District of Columbia, Muriel E. Bowser, Mayor

The project includes restoring and replacing the tree canopy, restoring the soil and curbing rodent infestations, significant regrading and relocation of paths, rain-gardens for on-site surface storm-water management, restoration of central flag-stone plaza with a redesigned interactive fountain, restoration and augmentation of historic light fixtures, benches, and fencing, creation of a new "children's garden" informal play area, and a Cafe-Pavilion, deck and plaza located at the southern edge of the site. Scope of the project includes utilities, streetscapes and sidewalks continuous with the park-block beyond the parcel property.

Individuals experiencing homelessness may receive services Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm at the Downtown Day Services Center, located in the basement of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church (1313 New York Ave, NW).

[ I should note that squirrels are considered rodents. ]
