Description

In 1942, the Washington Post reported four acres allocated by the Federal Works Agency (FWA) for a play field at Fort Dupont Park (now Fort Circle Park). This is likely the present site of Kimball Playground baseball fields. It is unknown if any work remains from the New Deal era.

Source notes

“FWA grants $235,000 for 9 D.C. play areas,” Washington Post, July 28, 1942, p. 1
