Green, blue and purple pieces of playground equipment have begun to pop up in Potomac Yard Park, a 21-acre linear park that’s taking shape this winter along Potomac Avenue in the Pulte development at Potomac Yard.
Eventually the park will feature a stage, play fountain for children, maze, canal and athletic courts, among many other amenities.
Connected by a lighted, 1.5-mile multi-use trail from Target to Braddock Road Metro station, the park will house its amenities in several “belvederes” or urban plazas located where the development’s streets dead-end into the rail tracks to the east. Each belvedere will contain a different amenity.
Athletic court lights, paved surfaces, trees and elements of the belvederes have also started to spring from the ground in recent months.
Land Planning and Design Associates, the firm behind the park, has detailed renderings of the park on its website.
