Bundy Field to Open May 12, 2012; Public Use Procedures Announced

Bundy Field will finally open for use by KIPP DC and the public on Saturday, May 12, 2012! 

Opening day events will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m and will include a ribbon cutting and a give-away of over 500 professional soccer balls to local youth on a first-come, first-served basis. (The U.S. Soccer Foundation made the balls available for $5 each; over $1,000 was raised from local residents and Douglas Development donated $1,000 in order to make the balls available for free.)

In addition, more details have been released regarding the use of the field by the public. As previously reported, primary use of the field has been granted to KIPP DC, which will generally have use of the field from 8:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. on weekedays and from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.   At other times, the field will be available for use by the public. The field may be reserved by the public for organized sports and recreational activites by filing an application with the District's Department of General Services (available here). When the field is not being used by either KIPP DC or an oragnized group, the field will be available to the public for unorganized sports and recreational acitivites.
