I first wrote about an effort by a group of neighbors to turn an underutilized city parcel into a community park (the process actually began in 2008). With the help of Mayor Fenty, Councilman Evans and countless others, their vision is now a reality, and a gorgeous green space is ready to be enjoyed.
To celebrate the park's grand opening, the Friends of the Tenth Street Park are hosting an event this Sunday, April 17th.* The grand opening event will start at noon and will feature an egg hunt, egg roll, light refreshments and a visit by a special bunny guest!
