Seasonal flower bed at 2nd and Mass Park

The improvements to DPR Park 1089 at the confluence of 2nd, Mass and H Street continue this month. In late March Casey Trees, with the aid of 68 volunteers, planted 34 new trees at the park.

This month the seasonal flower bed at the western edge of the landscaping will be planted. Last week a volunteer roto-tilled the grass under and the CID hopes to have red salvia planted this Friday if the clean team can remove all the remaining roots out of the soil.

The next phase of improvements, which include transferring lighting, benches, bike racks and trash cans from the Art Walk will not occur until the City Center DC project begins. The Deputy Mayor of Economic Development, Neil Albert, remains optimistic the City Center development will start in the fall after the Washington Kastles tennis season is complete.

    I’m not sure when your picture is from, but we walked by the park today around 2pm and there were two guys in that corner rototilled part doing landscaping of some sort.
