The 16-day shutdown, which shuttered the popular Montgomery County space, cost the nonprofit agency that runs the park about $200,000, a representative from the Partnership for Arts and Culture says.
The policy takes effect Monday. It includes all city parks and the downtown University Plaza. The Hagerstown Greens at Hamilton Run golf course and designated areas of Municipal Stadium are exempt.
The D.C. Department of Transportation will transform more than 20 parking spaces into miniature parks today as part of an event designed to encourage more green spaces and eco-friendly modes of transportation.
