Bundy Field Renovation Project is Complete

The construction of the Bundy Field and the Bundy dog park are now complete, according to a post by the Friends of Bundy Park.  (Pictures of the completed field and dog park are after the jump.)

As reported previously on this website, the project includes a total renovation of the existing field -- replacing the current field with a multipurpose turf field striped for soccer, lacrosse, and softball -- and creation of space for a dog park.

The project is a joint venture of the District government, KIPP DC (which runs the WILL Academy and Grow Academy across the street from the Bundy Field), and the U.S. Soccer Foundation.  Use of the field will be shared between KIPP DC and the District; according to KIPP DC, "the District Department of General Services and a community-based organization ... will decide when/how the field is used."

In addition, the U.S. Soccer Foundation's Soccer for Success program is expected to begin at Bundy Field in the fall of 2012.  (More information on the Soccer for Success program is after the jump.)

  1. Sorry, saw this after I commented on the other post. It certainly looks done, but any word on when the public will have access to it?
