Legacy Project: Dumbarton Oaks Park Restoration
Dumbarton Oaks Park, a segment of Rock Creek Park and the masterpiece of Beatrix Farrand, America's first woman landscape architect, is the best example of a 1920s Country Place Era estate in America. Funding for this project will restore the two-acre historic Beech Grove entrance to the Park, including restoration of stonework and the designed landscape, tackling each challenge facing the Park as a whole: storm water, invasive weeds, historic stonework, and establishing a sustainable plant community.
