May 11 - Explore the Potential of Placemaking on a Community Walk to Kingman Island
You are invited by the District Department of Energy and Environment on Saturday, May 11th from 10 am – 12pm for a Community Walk to Kingman Island to share your ideas for enhancing the journey from your backyard to the island.
During the walk participants will explore pilot projects that can transform Ethel Kennedy/ Benning Road Bridge and the entrance to Kingman Island into vibrant social public spaces by adding temporary seating, plants, and art work to make the space more inviting and enjoyable.
The walk will start at 10:00 am on the corner of Benning Road and Anacostia Ave NE and conclude at 12:00 pm on the corner of Benning Road and Oklahoma Ave NE with stopping points along the way for discussion.
For information about the walk, contact Kara Pennino, at 202-654-6131 or Kara.Pennino@dc.gov.
Equitable access to the Anacostia River and its parks is a priority for APACC and our constituents and we look forward to working with DOEE to improve the connection from the east side of the river to Kingman Island, an amazing and important asset.
