Initiatives > MVT Open Space Planning & Cobb Park Phase One “Reactivation”
Community feedback and DC data regarding Mount Vernon Triangle’s scarcity of open space is a large reason why MVT CID invested significant resources to fully define and strategically prioritize the community’s open space needs through the MVT Open Space Study. Our transparent, community-led and data-driven process offers a comprehensive master plan for the enhanced use and activation of multiple community open space resources. Among all of the recommendations proposed in the MVT Open Space Study, the study’s most galvanizing, catalytic and imminently achievable proposal is its bold new vision for a “re-imagined” Cobb Park to serve as an iconic open and artistic space, destination and gateway into Mount Vernon Triangle and downtown DC.
The current project timeline estimates a project start date of Winter 2020 and end date of Spring 2021.
A community update to review and provide feedback on design plans will scheduled prior to the commencement of construction. Please stay tuned through our newsletter, social media @mvtcid and our website for additional details and announcements regarding that meeting.
