The District’s Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and Department of General Services (DGS) are pleased to invite you to a meeting to discuss the renovation of the playground at Trinidad Recreation Center (1310 Childress Street NE). The renovation is part of the Mayor’s Play DC initiative to provide children and adults with exciting, innovative, and inclusive play spaces.

The first phase of renovating a playground are planning and design. At this first community meeting, DPR and DGS will introduce the project and project team and solicit your feedback about your play space needs. Children are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 18, 2014, from 7:00-8:30 pm at Trinidad Recreation Center, 1310 Childress Street NE.

For those unable to attend the meeting, we will also provide an online survey to solicit design ideas and input. You will be able to access the link through the project website: http://dpr.dc.gov/page/play-dc-trinidad-playground-renovation.

Zumba Gold targets the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active old participant as well as those just starting their journey to fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements Zumba is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement, and fitness as a regular part of the their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun.
