ABOUT Washington Parks and People
Founded by a number of community and park leaders and organizations nearly 25 years ago, Washington Parks and People led the transformation of Malcom X/Meridian Hill Park from one of the capital’s most violent parks to one of its safest. WPP leads green initiatives across the city, and fights to provide low-income neighborhoods and communities with parks and greenspaces. In part due to WPP’s efforts with the city’s parks, the Parkscore ranking system rated DC as the #2 city in the nation for parks.
