On Saturday, July 25th from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., the DC Department of Parks and Recreation along with the mayor are celebrating National Park and Recreation Month with “Recreation Day,” a FREE extravaganza featuring fun activities, entertainment and food for families from all eight wards. The theme is ’80s summer party, complete with roller skating and music.
All of this takes place at Randall Field (South Capitol and I Streets, SW), which is easily accessible via Metro Green Line Waterfront and Navy Yard stations.
Residents from across DC can enjoy music, swimming, soccer, tennis, basketball, softball, moonbounces, dodgeball, face painting, horseshoes, line dancing, sack races, tug of war, face painting, arts and crafts, fitness demonstrations and, just announced, a Rock Wall!
Also, join the “Talent Search,” where residents can go onstage in the Showmobile and sing, dance, or perform whatever talent they have for fun and prizes. Green thumbs can enjoy gardening tips and demonstrations.
