BACKGROUND: The Department of Parks and Recreation will join Council member Ivory Lee Young, Jr. Friday at 10 a.m. for a ribbon-cutting celebration at Westlake and Boone Park. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the intersection of Westlake Avenue NW and Joseph E. Boone Boulevard NW. The former city-owned vacant parcel sat underutilized and derelict for many years but is now repurposed and will serve as an amenity to the community.
"I am pleased that District 3 is home to a new park with a number of recreational features for all of our residents to enjoy," said Council member Ivory Lee Young, Jr. "The 1.39-acre park has a walking path and areas for playing, picnicking and relaxing. It is located at the intersection of one of the most prominent streets in our community-Westlake Avenue, N.W. and Joseph E. Boone Boulevard, N.W.”
