Golden Outdoor Opportunities in DC's Golden Triangle
Notable for great outdoor activations in the heart of DC's business district -- literally from the front yard of the White House to Dupont Circle -- the Golden Triangle BID recently announced that popular outdoor programming would resume with safe, productive, and enjoyable experiences like the Golden Triangle Outdoor Office, free fresh air fitness classes, and artistic social spaces.
Whether reopening means a return to your Golden Triangle-area office or not, you won't want to skip these golden opportunities in one of the city's most missed areas. (We walked by the other day and the ducks were back in the tree/pollinator boxes... awwww!)
Weekdays from 9 am - 5 pm
Take a break from working from home. Socially distanced tables and chairs are available for use on a first-come, first-served basis in Farragut, Longfellow, and Monroe Parks. All three parks have spaces perfect for working, eating, and meeting safely. And as always, you can connect to FREE WiFi in Farragut Square.
TriFit: Free Outdoor Fitness Classes
Wednesdays at 5:30 pm in May, June, July, September, and October
Grab your mat, face mask, and water bottle -- your favorite outdoor fitness program is back! TriFit is a healthy happy hour of safe, fun, and free outdoor Pilates classes taught by certified instructors every Wednesday evening beginning May 5. All classes are free to attend. Due to social distancing requirements space is limited, however, and advanced reservations are required.
These classes are also weather-dependent. Check the BID's social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) for any weather-related changes. Registrants will also be notified of cancellations via email.
This community-focused art initiative is the BID’s newest public art project along Pennsylvania Avenue. The installations feature brightly colored outdoor seating and provide space for people to safely meet in a beautiful and creative setting.
Make sure to check out The Penn Ave Pocket Park (19th Street, H Street, and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW) which is now home to MERIDIAN by Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong and Edward R. Murrow Park which is now home to Common Ground by Risa Puno.
