Rock Creek Conservancy
Awarded the Meridian Hill Park Partners in Preservation Grant in 2013. Meridian Hill Park is a nationally significant example of Neoclassicist American park design first proposed in the 1901 McMillan Plan. The exposed aggregate concrete throughout creates a public park whose ambitious scale, intent, and historic integrity has not been matched in the United States. Today, it serves as a gathering place for the local community as well as for visitors from around the world. A $50,000 grant will stabilize and repair exposed aggregate concrete grotto.
