This month's park is shared by a new member: D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation.

The Chuck Brown Memorial Park is located in Northeast, Washington, D.C. and honors the memory of Chuck Brown – one of D.C.’s phenomenal music legends.

The memorial pays homage to Brown with a curved, inscribed memorial wall at the entrance of the park, where visitors can learn more about his legacy. An abstract sculpture signifies the “call and response” associated with the go-go music that Brown pioneered. 

At the memorial park goers can play the outdoor toy drums and visit the central plaza, which can be used for entertainment. 

The park and plaza recognize Brown’s contributions as the District of Columbia’s unofficial ambassador of music. The park is located on a portion of Langdon Park in Ward 5 and the groundbreaking ceremony was held on the date that would have been Chuck Brown’s 77th birthday.
