As part of the Play DC comprehensive Parks and Recreation 10-15 year Master Plan for the District of Columbia, the current play space at Trinidad Recreation Center will be renovated to enhance the park's resources to help Washingtonians "Move, Grow, and Be Green!” elevate their quality of life. To ensure that the newly renovated play space meets the needs of, and reflects the individuality and uniqueness of the community, DGS strongly urges District residents to participate in the community meetings.
The Scope of Work for the new playground includes the demolition of the existing playground and the design and construction of a new playground. The new playground will include play areas for children ages 2 to 5 and 5 to 12, a climbing wall, game tables, new adult fitness equipment, new site furnishings, site lightings, landscaping, and a rain garden to address concerns from residents about erosion and water-run off issues at this location. The basketball courts will also be resurfaced and the playground will have ADA accessibility.
