1500 S Capitol St SE, Washington, DC 20003, United States
Nationals Park is a modern facility designed to mimic some of DC’s architecture. After a long period of time trying to figure out what to do with the Montreal franchise, Major League Baseball finally came to a decision and moved the team to Washington. The Nationals spent a few years in RFK Stadium (a horrible place for baseball) until relocating into their new home in 2008. The surrounding neighborhood seems to get better by the day and with a good team now in place, Nationals Park is underrated as a decent ballpark.
Nationals Park is the nation’s first major professional sports stadium to become LEED Silver Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. The facility incorporates a variety of sustainable design elements and pays particular attention to issues affecting the health of the Anacostia River, such as storm water management and minimization of water pollution. Children young and old are invited to visit this kids-oriented play area located inside the Right Field Gate, adjacent to the Red Porch Restaurant. Here guests will find a jungle gym and other activities. NOTE: The following applies to Jungle Gym activities: Children must be supervised by a parent or adult at all times. The jungle gym area is designed for children ages 3-8 years old. Socks are suggested to be worn for safe play. The jungle gym will close at the discretion of Nationals Park management in the event of inclement weather (e.g. extreme heat, rain, etc.).
