Back in May we wrote about a two acre park planned in nearby Eckington along the Met Branch Trail. We figured readers would be interested in an update even though this is beyond Brookland – the plans look great! We recently learned more details from this article in Urban Turf including playgrounds for various age groups from  2 to 5+ years of age, and an amphitheater with food kiosks and an event lawn. Sounds like a promising resource for the greater area. We will keep an eye on park progress and let you know of any news.

Get The Latest On The Noyes Playground Overhaul At A Project Status Meeting Tomorrow

The “playground” across from Brookland’s Noyes Elementary School has been slated for an overhaul for a long time now.  As far as I know, the Request For Proposals has been released, responded to, and work should be well under by now. But it’s not. Those, like me, that are curious about the status of the playground should attend a project update meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, October 24th from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. The meeting will take place at Noyes Elementary School, 2701 10th Street NE.
