Phase Two of Waterfront Project Begins

Caitlin White

The construction on the second phase of the Georgetown Waterfront Park project has begun after lack of funding delayed the project. The park is expected to be 225 miles, the "largest park to be created in the Nation’s Capital in 30 years since Constitution Gardens was completed on the National Mall in 1976," according to the National Park Service.

The former parking lot is already showing signs of a city park, with much of a shoreline pathway completed. The completed project will have flowers, benches, a fountain, promenades, bike trails and river overlooks with "sculpted granite slabs etched with historic images of Georgetown’s maritime heritage," the National Park Service said.

The first stage of construction, removing the parking lot, has made room for these developments over the past four years.
