Park Infrastructure

Carter G. Woodson Park
Originally uploaded by Rob Goodspeed.
I have noticed some common elements to several triangle parks around the city: notably, asphault surfacing and iron fencing with no raison d'etre (like in this photo of the Carter Woodson "park" at 9th and Q Streets and Rhode Island Avenue).

Does anyone know why or when these fences fencing no one in and this pavement paving no way were added to our parks?

I'm afraid I have no answers but only questions...

Does anyone know the current status of the park renovation here at 9th & Q & Rhode Island?

I remember reading something here and on the Goodspeed Update a few months back that there was some funding holdups?? Any resolution or is everything on hold?

I think the fences are meant to direct people through the park using the intended paths. Without the fences, people might cut through grassy areas/flower beds, damaging the limited greenscaping.
