About The Fields at RFK Campus

The Fields at RFK Campus are your space to play and bring the community together to experience the District’s vibrant recreational facilities and open spaces. The multi-purpose sports complex is equipped with turf fields, bike paths and a celebration pavilion to mark your next special occasion with family and friends.

The District’s newest 27-acre outdoor sports complex holds a prime position on the west bank of the historic Anacostia River. Its eco-conscious design preserves the natural beauty of The Fields’ location and protects the landscape for future generations of Washingtonians and visitors alike.
