Build a Playground in Downtown DC

We, the undersigned, would like a playground in Downtown DC. This neighborhood has changed and grown dramatically within the past decade, but the park spaces have lagged behind. Although this is a wonderfully family-friendly neighborhood in so many ways, the children need a place to play. In the past few years, many children have moved - or been born - into the neighborhood. Hundreds, if not thousands, of additional children go to preschool or elementary school here. And, many thousands of children come to this neighborhood each year as part of their family vacations. Yet, there are no public playgrounds, even at the local schools. Instead, preschool children are walked in circles around the block, elementary school children play in a cramped dark garage-like space, neighborhood children are driven to the suburbs, and tourists don't stay quite so long. As this neighborhood sits in the center of a nation plagued by rising obesity, it is our responsibility to provide a safe place for neighborhood and visiting children to play. We look forward to working together to make this neighborhood even more vibrant.
