Begun more than 25 years ago in Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park by a range of community and parks leaders and organizations, Washington Parks & People led the transformation of the single most violent park in the capital region into one of its safest. Today, they lead greening initiatives across the city — massive land reclamation, native reforestation, watershed restoration, public health and fitness programming, urban agriculture, and green job training — to help revitalize parks and work for justice alongside local communities.
