Ludlow-Taylor Elementary School at 659 G St. NE is scheduled to receive a new playground over the summer, according to an email from ANC 6A Chairman Phil Toomajian. Mayor Muriel Bowser submitted the request to fund the new playground after several community members raised concerns about a lack of play space at the school, Toomajian said.

The new playground is not the only scheduled improvement at the elementary school this summer. The school also has plans for a new rain garden and school garden, which were both funded by a grant from the District Department of Energy and Environment RiverSmart schools program. The RiverSmart schools program provides funding for greenspaces at schools that create habitats for local wildlife and prevent stormwater runoff.
