In partnership with Historic Dupont Circle Main Streets, a group of volunteers from Dupont Circle businesses will spend Friday, April 12 beautifying the park, clearing brush, planting flowers, mulching soil, and more. Afterwards, the Dupont Circle BID will thank the volunteers by picking up the first round at McClellan’s Retreat (2031 Florida Ave. NW).
Did you know McClellan Park has a rich history?
The bronze equestrian statue of Major General George B. McClellan sits in the busy triangle bounded by California Street, Columbia Road and Connecticut Avenue NW. It was created thanks to nearby residents, and dedicated in 1907 at a ceremony with dignitaries including President Theodore Roosevelt. The sculpture is one of 18 Civil War monuments in the District of Columbia that are collectively listed on the National Register of Historic Places; this monument is maintained by the National Park Service.
Date: Friday, April 12
Location: McClellan Park
Time: 12 pm to 4 pm
