There's a little triangle of land between 9th, Rhode Island, and Q Streets that, as far as I can tell, the D.C. City Council named the Carter G. Woodson Memorial Park in 2001. The land has some iron fencing and some trees and is partially paved. It is a far cry from an asset to the neighborhood in its present state, and is hardly a "park." Does anyone know of present plans for the space or of any past attempts to advance the park?
I think the park could be improved with relatively little investment: removing the asphalt and possibly extending the fence around the entire park. I think the space could make a neat small dog park, a community garden of some sort, or just a pleasant green space in the city. Anyone else have ideas for this space?
