Georgetown Waterfront Park Finally Moves Forward

With all the recent excitement over plans to redevelop the Southwest and Anacostia waterfronts, it’s been easy to forget the lack of activity surrounding the long-on-the-board plans for the Georgetown waterfront. However, this is about to change, as work is now starting on the $15 million Georgetown Waterfront Park, which is to occupy 10 acres between Washington Harbour and the Key Bridge. When completed by the end of 2007, the park will include pathways, a new promenade to integrate the shore line from Key Bridge to Washington Harbour and the Kennedy Center, gardens, a bike path connecting the Rock Creek Trail to the Capital Crescent Trail, and “environmentally sound bio-edge spaces that preserve native plants and enhance water quality” … guess we’ll see what that means in 18 months.
