Photos from Park View Recreation’s Ribbon Cutting

March 26, 2013

DSC_1750As I announced last week, Park View Recreation Center hosted a ribbon cutting on Saturday,  March 23rd, to celebrate the completion of renovations in the main building. Mayor Gray, Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham, Director Aguirre, and ANC Commissioner Boese were among the speakers at the event. Ward 4 Councilmember Bowser also stopped by briefly near the end of the event.

Video of the event was taken and will be released after editing. I’ll be sure to post it when its available. In the mean time, enjoy these photos from the event. (I’d like to thank the Mayor’s office for sharing many of these photographs with me).

At long last, the Park View Recreation Center is set to reopen. This Saturday, March 23rd, Mayor Gray (and presumably others) is scheduled to officially reopen Park View with a ribbon cutting at noon. This is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the much-needed improvements to one of the neighborhood’s core community assets.

I’ll post more details as I get them. Consider attending. It’s a good opportunity to meet new neighbors and meet District officials.

I’m including photos to give a preview of some of the improvements that have been accomplished.
