Eckington Dog Park [Oct 2021]
KT Enterprises [KTE] completed phase one of this project in the spring of 2020 and phase two this past spring. This landscape enhances a pet friendly space that allows residents of N0MA [North of Massachusetts Avenue, in Washington, DC]—with limited options in the city for their dog’s run and play—a recreation area. The bike lane and walkways are shaded by large elms trees that connects the dog park to Althia Tanner Park next door. In addition, a bioswale landscaped with grasses, perennials, and shrubs collects and filters all the rain water from this site. Although not a large space in comparison to jobs in the suburbs, this compact but intense urban landscape adds value to the neighborhood and is appreciated and heavily utilized by its residents.
