District of Columbia Parks & RecreationThe Legacy Memorial Park is dedicated to honor the nine lives lost on June 22, 2009 as a result of an unprecedented train collision. Designed collaboratively by Hunt Laudi Studio with sculptor Barbara Liotta and built through a partnership between the DC commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Department of General Services, the park is intended as a space of reflection and joyous remembrance. Nine stone sculpted forms rise from earthen mounds, individually etched with a name, recalling souls that will never be forgotten. This park also symbolizes the collective experience shared by first responders, community members, and countless others whose lives were forever altered by the tragedy. Above the park, a canopy of London Planes will shade the greenspace and embody the overlapping network of families, friends, and neighbors that intersect on common ground below.
