Glad to hear about this new development. One thing that needs to be addressed is the wear on the landscape from the many dogs walked and let loose every day down there. Not sure how that can be handled, but it greatly contributes to erosion.

Dumbarton Oaks is a national treasure. The name of the new organization is Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy,which is owned by the National Park Service. This is not to be confused with Dumbarton Oaks, which comprises the ornamental gardens that people are familiar with. The DOPC organizer is Rebecca Trafton


We visited D.O. last spring and enjoyed our time there but wished the buildings were open for touring.

The gardens were delightful.

Hopefully, the restoration will include the historic home as well as the gardens.
