Update on 11th and Park Dog Park
Posted on January 22, 2018 at 1:18 PM
After speaking with the Chairman of the Metro Board today, January 22, 2018, Councilmember Nadeau sent the following message to community listservs about the 11th and Park Dog Park:
I’ve gotten some calls from neighbors concerned about the 11th and Park dog park and I wanted to make sure folks had all the info. I just got off the phone with the Chairman of the Metro Board and he has assured me there is no immediate action being taken on the parcel which is owned by WMATA. WMATA has made a list of all the parcels they no longer need and would like to sell and this is one of them. They’ve submitted the list to the District government for review to see if we’d like to acquire the parcels ourselves. The District will have all the time we need to consider that opportunity. Initially WMATA indicated to some community members that it might be considering this issue at a public meeting early this week, but I have been told that’s not the case.
Over the past three years I’ve been working with the 11th and Bark community group to help them position themselves as the primary operators of the parcel and to keep the park open. I will continue to work with them and all the residents who are interested to ensure we can preserve this space for community use. The stewards of the park have put in countless hours of dedicated volunteer time to maintain the space and it’s a beloved spot in the community, and I know it’s important for our residents and their furry friends that it continue.
