Downtown DC Kids has been working hard to make our neighborhood more kid and family friendly - and we are pleased to report they are making great strides.
Yesterday, the DC Committee on Libraries, Parks, Recreation and Planning, chaired by Councilmember Tommy Wells, unanimously approved budget recommendations that included funds for a playground. It's been suggested that Carnegie Library, Seaton Park or the National Building Museum lawn house a kid-friendly playground or climbing structure.
Still, the funding is not currently guaranteed - the budget must be approved by Mayor Gray and other councilmembers - and Downtown DC Kids wants your help. Check out their post on how you can get involved.
