If you're interested in the park at 14th/Oak/Ogden, head over to Stephen's Church (1525 Newton Street NW) on Monday the 19th at 6 pm. They're showing their new design, which includes a rain garden and some seating "pods." Looks like they're taking away the painted benches that are there now.
The park has become well known for drug dealing and criminal activity, and maybe the redesign will address that -- like the one for the park at 11th and Monroe.
Then, right after that at 7 pm at St. Stephen's, the Northwest Columbia Heights Neighborhood Association is having their meeting, which will be attended by DC councilmember Kwame Brown and Landy Thompson of In Da Streets, a nonprofit.
