Celebrating The 100th Anniversary of Anacostia Park

Anacostia Park is marking its 100 year anniversary and today I have details on how park officials are planning to celebrate this milestone occasion.  My two guests this morning are Pya Langley – Public Affairs Specialist, National Park Service and  Akima Price – Community Liaison for the National Park Foundation

August 31 marked the 100th anniversary of Anacostia Park,. As part of a three-year effort to revitalize Anacostia Park, the National Park Foundation announced today a $861,000 grant to support the park’s efforts to expand relationships with local businesses and government agencies. The grant will help the park strengthen philanthropic ties and encourage people to enjoy the unique recreational and educational activities in Anacostia Park.  More information here:
