Today in Play: New D.C. playground revitalizes neighborhood

Park and PeopleNew D.C. playground revitalizes neighborhood
Folks who had the pleasure of attending the Washington, D.C. WE Play! event last year got to hear from Steve Coleman, executive director of Washington Parks & People, who's been working tirelessly with the community around Marvin Gaye Park to revitalize the park and the neighborhood. And yesterday, the project celebrated a major milestone: a brand-new playground, or as the Washington Post put it, "the first time in almost 30 years the park has seen a major improvement."

You can read the full article here, and learn more about the project here. Congratulations to Steve and all the great folks at Washington Parks & People - we're excited to see the next phase of the project!

Thanks for the shout-outs!
