The National Park Service (NPS) is initiating a Management Plan/Environmental Assessment (plan/EA) for Anacostia Park and would like your help in charting a course for the future management of the park. You are invited to participate in a public process to determine the potential alternative uses of the park, issues to be addressed, and impacts that need to be analyzed in this process.
Anacostia Park has numerous opportunities to showcase urban environmental management and civic engagement. In recent years the Anacostia River and adjacent park lands have been the focus of public and governmental attention, resulting in improved access, new recreational facilities, and opportunities to improve lingering environmental issues. We need a framework for the park to help the NPS make decisions about the issues and concerns confronting Anacostia Park, ensure that park resources are preserved, and provide a diversity of quality visitor experiences.
A broad spectrum of visitor use is seen in the areas within Anacostia Park. Recently different uses and recreational opportunities have been enhanced through trail construction and river access. What other developments or opportunities should be provided for visitors to use and experience the park recreational, educational and open space?
The meeting is on the 27th at 5:00pm at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum.
