I am pleased to announce construction has began on the new dog park near Shaw Jr. High School site - and at my request the project has been expanded to 15,000 square feet. On a walk-thru the community in September, Mayor Adrian Fenty promised the Shaw/Logan neighborhoods this much needed urban amenity, which was originally slated to be 10,000 square feet. Working with the Department of Parks and Recreation, after numerous requests from constituents in these Ward 2 neighborhoods, I asked for and secured the larger area. The dog park which will be located on the soccer fields near 11th & R is eagerly awaited. The park will open in the near future -- stay tuned for the ribbon-cutting date and time!Woot! I can't wait to walk the ReNewShaw mascott over to this new dog park near 11th and R Streets to watch him enjoy playing with his fellow neighborhood hounds.
