Then and Now: The Reserve at Park Place and Rock Creek Church Road

Park Place ReserveThen: Photographed ca. 1921, the reserve at Park Place, Park Place and Rock Creek Church Road, NW. This image was taken as park of a survey of the City’s many reserves.

Park Place and RCCR ReserveNow: Still a green, tree filled area, the reserve now has a sidewalk. The streetlight has been removed and replaced by modern versions. In 2007, the reserve received new trees with the assistance of Casey Trees, which are all still doing well. If you happen to be at this location, you may want to take note of the house to the right in the earlier photograph. Though you can’t see it in the now photograph above, the porches in the earlier photograph are no longer there.
