In effort to accommodate children in under-served neighborhoods of Washington DC, Washington Tennis & Education Foundation is building a tennis facility that is located in Southeast Washington DC. The facility is located on a seven acre site in Ward 7.
WMC-LA landscape architecture services for this project includes, site layout, grading, terracing, tree preservation, as well as pedestrian and vehicular flow. An entry plaza was designed for use as a drop off and gathering zone that can support emergency vehicle access when required. The integration of bio-retention plantings is also being implemented to reduce the amount of stormwater leaving the site.
