Elm Street Park Update
It looks like the construction at the Elm Street Park on the edge of Bethesda and Chevy Chase, MD is nearing completion. I first posted about this almost three months ago, at the time, I didn't know what they were doing, but I found a gazette article with more information.
Improvements include re-paving the walkways, adding a new southeast to northwest walkway, new benches and picnic tables, new trashcans and recycling bins and some new lighting. They are planning to be finished in July. The upgrades are being paid for by the Donohoe Development Company as part of the construction of the hotel in the Air Rights complex.
All but one of the walkways is paved, the last one looks like they need a bit more work before they are ready to pave.
They have started the landscaping, some of the trees and shrubs are already in the ground and they were actively planting when I was there. The new benches and tables still need to be installed, but sometime in July seems like a reasonable completion estimate.
