Reservation 72 is bordered by Massachusetts Avenue on the north, I Street on the south, 6th Street on the west, and 5th Street on the east. The park is commonly referred to as Chinatown Park due to its location.
The Downtown BID, in partnership with the National Park Service, rehabilitated Reservation 72 in summer 2012. The project included replacement of the interior sidewalk, new sod, upgrades to the irrigation system, and the installation of ten new benches and four new trash cans. Additionally, the National Park Service planted several new trees in the park during the fall of 2012.
This renovation was accomplished through contributions from the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association and developers of nearby projects, as well as a Transportation Enhancements grant from the District Department of Transportation.
