Meeting Scheduled

Meeting is at the JBG Marketing Center (241 18th St., first floor) on Thursday, February 20, from 6:30-8 p.m.


The site was first presented in the Pentagon City Phased Development Site Plan and adopted by the County Board in 1976.

The developer will provide .56 acres of open space, the last segment of a two-acre central public open space called for in the 2004 Metropolitan Park Design Guidelines, and two additional public open space areas, totaling about 18,000 square feet, facing the central park.

On Dec. 14, 2019 the County Board approved a plan for the first phase of Metropolitan Park’s development, which includes public open spaces.

County officials want help to re-imagine the new Metropolitan Park public space. Learn about its current conditions, discover opportunities for new and exciting features and share your input regarding how the space can best be used. New thoughts and ideas will help shape the Master Plan and design guidelines for this new community park.
