Franklin Park, DC’s largest public park, has reopened after a $21 million renovation. The five-acre historic square, originally established in 1832, hadn’t been updated since 1935.
Working as sustainability consultants, Above Green helped transform the green space into a sustainable neighborhood retreat. We implemented a storm water management system that captures 100% of the water runoff from the park, a green roof on the 2,200 square foot restaurant pavilion, and energy efficient features.
Also found in the Park is a restored fountain plaza and children’s garden, making it the ideal place to relax, gather, and play in Downtown DC.
