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
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.
