Rudolph Playground Fields – Washington DC

Description

In 1942, the Washington Post reported the allocation of $20,448 to the Federal Works Agency (FWA) for new construction and/or improvements to the Rudolph Playground in the city’s northwest quadrant.

Today, park abuts the Washington Latin Public Charter School and is apparently part of the school’s recreation area.  There is a baseball field and traces of an older field, as well as a soccer pitch.  The ball fields very likely trace back to the New Deal work of the early 1940s.
