Who We Are

A growing number of DC residents that are frustrated with the lack of green space and athletic fields available for youth (and adult) sports.  The drawings on this website were developed by a group of volunteer parents and local community leaders.  The motivation stems from the growing number of active families that are staying in DC that do not have enough room to hold practices and games.  Since the first initial discussions about the project, there has been an overwhelmingly positive reaction from across the City.
