This community hub, Blair Mushala writes, is a standout spot in Brookland for D.C. residents of all ages
It’s address is 1100 Michigan Avenue NE, but you can see it from all the way down 10th or 11th Streets. The name is only visible once you walk upon it, but everyone in the neighborhood knows Turkey Thicket Park and Recreation center, affectionately known as “The Rec." It is a large inclusive space, with huge windows and contains a lot to do. People can come by bus, walking or Metro; the closest Metro station is Brookland. This is the route I usually take, the walk from Brookland is less than 5 minutes.
