Then and Now: The Park View Playground Field House

On Wednesday it was brought to my attention that the Department of General Services had posted a nice overview of the neighborhood on their Website as part of Black History Month.  The lead in to their overview began as follows:

In celebration of Black History Month, we are spotlighting recent Department of General Services (DGS) construction projects that are named after significant Black History People & Places in the District of Columbia, our nation. The first project that we will highlight is the Park View Field House in Ward 1.

You can visit the entire profile here, which also highlights from my Historic Park View: A Walking Tour guide. As the reason for the post is to highlight the Park View Playground field house, which was fully renovated in 2015, I’m including before and after photos below for those who may not recall what the field house looked like before renovations.

    Looks wonderful. A vast improvement. Is it still free of graffiti?
