PARK(ing) Day in Mount Vernon Triangle

5th Street Ace Hardware
1055 5th Street, NW
Event Description: 

On Friday, September 15th, the Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVT CID) will join with 5th Street Ace Hardware to transform two parking spaces on 5th Street just north of K Street and in front of the hardware store into a 40’ contiguous pop-up park or park(let) as part of 2017 PARK(ing) Day in Washington, DC. In one parking space, the hardware store will fabricate a complimentary workshop and outdoor seating area, where store staff will lead free informational workshops to customers and visitors walking by. In the second parking space, the MVT CID will welcome guests to a free game area, including oversized wooden "jenga" blocks, plinko, and tic-tac-toe. The MVT CID/5th Street Ace Hardware park(let) will be open from 10 AM to 6 PM. Each year, working in conjunction with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), DC businesses put their creativity on display, building pop-up parks and living rooms in curbside parking spaces.
