A collection of plastic play equipment and toys near the Eastern Market Metro station is on its way out.

The District is removing the Eastern Market Metro Park’s “plastic park” near Pennsylvania Avenue and 9th Street SE, according to an Eastern Market Metro Community Association email sent to locals this afternoon.

It wasn’t immediately clear when the play area, also known as the “guerilla playground,” will disappear. But D.C. officials will provide one week’s notice before they take it away.
