Mayor Bowser to Celebrate Modernization of Kenilworth Recreation Center, Announce New DPR Permit and Application Process

Friday, June 16, 2017

(Washington, DC) – On Saturday, June 17, at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser will celebrate the reopening of Kenilworth Recreation Center, a $17 million modernization project in Ward 7. Formerly located at Kenilworth Parkside, the new facility includes a multi-purpose room, fitness center, gymnasium, outdoor pool, computer lab, and boxing and locker rooms. Designed to meet LEED Gold Certification, the center will also include amenities such as a bicycle repair station and an electric vehicle charging station, the first ever at a Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) center.

As a part of the Back to Basics DC campaign, a celebration of the day-to-day work that keeps Washington, DC going, the Mayor will announce a new permit and application process to make it easier for residents to access and reserve DPR’s fields, courts, recreation centers, and pools. Under the new permit application process, residents will be able to search by location, facility type, and view a space’s availability.
