About The Fields

As one of the first redevelopment elements, The Fields at RFK Campus officially opened for community use in June 2019. With the vision to restore the Campus as a dynamic entertainment and sports destination for residents and visitors to enjoy, The Fields at RFK Campus marks the first completed phase of the Campus’ redevelopment project. The completion of this phase signifies more community open space and a dynamic recreational destination. Our plan will improve accessibility to the site for the surrounding neighborhoods and integrate the natural beauty of the historic Anacostia River. The redevelopment plan prioritizes immediate upgrades, which can be designed and built over the next two to five years. These elements remain consistent with the long-term vision and goals for creating a more holistic and vibrant sports and recreation destination within the District.

The Fields at RFK Campus is a 27-acre multi-purpose sports complex about two miles due east of the US Capitol Building, near the west bank of the Anacostia River. The Fields, completed in 2019 and operated daily by Capitol Riverside Youth Sports Park (CRYSP), is equipped with:

  • Three multi-purpose turf fields to accommodate kickball, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball and more
  • A celebration pavilion and plaza
  • Restroom facilities
  • Playground and picnic area
  • Green space, landscaping and bioretention
  • Walking/biking paths and improved river access
  • Dedicated parking

CRYSP is responsible for managing the scheduling and field operations to ensure the proper utilization of the complex for sports clubs, leagues, individuals and other groups seeking to rent and/or use the space. To learn more about operating policies, procedures and schedules, please visit here.
