Southwest Duck Pond to Reopen This Summer
The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation only is a couple months away from officially welcoming waterfowl and locals back to a pond in Southwest.
The Southwest Duck Pond at 6th and I streets SW is slated to reopen July 4, with the conclusion of construction at the site, the parks department announced yesterday.
Dating back to 1972, the pond has endured neglect over the years, with its water often green from algae. But Southwest resident during the past few years have joined together to help clean up and restore the park.
