The Front Steps are rebuilt!  

The roots of the Gingko biloba tree on the sidewalk caused the sidewalk and the front steps of the park to heave and buckle, causing unsafe conditions.  After many meetings and generous contributions we were finally able to rebuild the steps.  The sidewalk and the steps had to be regraded and raised, and a sophisticated support system of steel piers was put in place under ground to allow the tree roots to continue to grow without causing further damage.

Thank you to the Friends of Montrose Park and the Georgetown Garden Club for support of this project.
