Fenty dedicates the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza

After some delay, it happened -- the mayor and crew dedicated the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza at the triangle bordered by 14th, Park and Kenyon.

The Plaza is pretty nice, I was sitting out there on Sunday and there was a nice crowd -- some kids playing, couples sitting on the grass, families relaxing on the benches. I took a few more photos here.

I guess the solar panel things aren't getting the leaves after all, but I think they look pretty good. Much better once they were just metal poles and not the lumpy padding stuff they had before.

yep. looks nice, although some of the jets seem to be lacking pressure.

Love the fountain. A few blocks from my place so have passed it quite a bit. People are gathering and hanging out, kids running through the streams, dogs...very neighborhoody.
