Bulletin boards installed at city parks

Spring Park, at the corner of Elm and Poplar avenues, will be the first of 12 Takoma Park parks and playgrounds to install new bulletin boards, designed for residents to share information about community activities.

The bulletin board project was orchestrated by Takoma Plays, Takoma Park planning staff, Takoma Park City Council, Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission and Takoma Park Public Works. Landis Construction is paying for the boards.

ying for the boards. The boards will be available for residents to post information about neighborhood events such as picnics and block parties, and could include reminders about city-wide activities such as play days, street festivals and outdoor concerts. After much discussion, City Council approved the posting of small advertisements that will appear on the bulletin boards. The ads must be no larger than 4 by 6 inches.

Pat Rumbaugh, director of Takoma Plays, is hopeful that the Spring Park bulletin board will be up by the end of July, and that the rest of the boards will be installed before Takoma Play’s Seventh Annual Play Day, on Saturday, Sept. 26.
