Half at I, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

A number of readers have written in over the past few days asking about some new stakes in the ground and spray paint that appeared on the Canal Park site recently, asking if this meant that construction was coming soon. I checked in with the park's overlord, Chris Vanarsdale, and this is his explanation: "The stakes and paint on the lots reflect major design features as reflected in the current schematic design documents. Staking out the site was a design exercise in order to get a better sense of proportion and relationship of the features on the site before we make any final decisions -- the design may be modified somewhat as a result. We may stake it out again after the next iteration." If you want to see the early look and feel of the (new) preliminary design, check the official web site at CanalParkDC.org.
Also, Chris mentioned some other changes folks will soon see on the site: "We will be taking down the orange fence on the south block and putting up "no dogs permitted" signs there in order to protect the sod. We will soon open the north block to dogs and place signs and plastic bags for dog waste -- we want to give the grass a little more time to establish before doing so. Folks should keep in mind that leashes will be required."

Looks like a nice design/layout.

Yea, the signs won't help, the fences haven't even kept the dogs out. I still see people everyday with their dogs out there on all three lots of grass.

I wrote in a few days ago not asking but in fact reporting that this is what was happening but thanks for the affirmation.

Design based on paint is a bit crowded but I love the ambition of this park and don't want to deter the designers from making it incredible.

The skating portion nearest M will be awesome as will the pavilion or two on the block. This park will be the centerpiece of this part of our hood!

I walked past today and the no dogs signs are already up. If they are going to allow dogs for a while on the other two parts, it cwould be nice if they left the fences up so they could run.

Hopefully people will pick up after their dogs. Has anyone noticed that the grassy area on the corner of I and Half, across from the Jefferson, has been getting worse and worse every day with people not picking up after their dog? Pretty rude.
