Just FYI, Lamont Park is at the corner of Lamont and Mt Pleasant Streets NW, less than 5 blocks from the Columbia Height Metro station. You can also take the H4, H8 and 42 buses directly to Lamont Park. The H2, S buses and Circulator get you within a stones throw. I thought I was going to miss this, but I will now be there. Awesome!
