The Washington Square parade grounds, Patch Barracks, requires refurbishment for upcoming events this summer, with work beginning Monday, May 20.

All grass areas surrounding the parade field will be closed off to pedestrian traffic. While the areas are closed off, the grass will be removed, ground will be leveled,  grass will be planted and the planting beds on the platform will be cleaned and replanted.

The total project is expected to last through the end of June. The garrison asks the Stuttgart military community for its cooperation during the refurbishment.

Note: Due to the refurbishment, the garrison Memorial Day ceremony has been moved to inside the Patch Chapel.
