• Gage-Eckington/LeDroit Park / WASHINGTON, DC

Parks + Playgrounds

Lee and Associates provided comprehensive landscape architectural services for the adaptive reuse of the former Gage-Eckington Elementary School Site. After a series of community design meetings, LAI developed a schematic plan for the new park that would include a playing field, playgrounds, and a dog park. The new park will emphasize sustainability through its minimal use hardscape, abundance of drought-tolerant plants, permeable paving and rain gardens that will capture and treat stormwater runoff before leaving the site.
