Friends of Kim Brenegar

Kim’s Garden is the restoration of a Capitol Hill park to honor the memory of Kim Brenegar, and is a partnership between the District of Columbia Department of Parks and Recreation and the Friends of Kim Brenegar.

Kim Brenegar, a Capitol Hill resident and owner of the Washington, D.C. landscaping business “The Ornamental Garden,” died in a car accident in 2009 at the age of 49. The Friends of Kim Brenegar formed in 2010 to create a living legacy in honor of Kim’s love of community and the environment. We chose the renovation of a small, public park just steps from Kim’s home, where for many years she had volunteered her talents and plant materials to maintain the garden.
