Message from Events DC
Our goals for the RFK Campus are to reconnect the space to the surrounding neighborhoods and draw the district's residents and visitors to a revitalized Anacostia waterfront.
As the City’s sports and entertainment arm, our mission and our vision is to create great experiences for residents and visitors to our city. The completion of the first phase of the RFK redevelopment project signifies more community open space creating a dynamic recreational destination. We are excited to execute this initiative that will better serve the city’s neighborhood by bringing activity and green space driving economic development and opportunities. By creating this green space, we are bringing in more pedestrian access, investing in transportation infrastructure and opening access to the river.
This new addition comes as a result of numerous residential and community meetings over the past few years where we’ve listened to neighbors’ concerns regarding the lack of green space in the District. Our vision has been brought to life and green space has increased by 200% due to the outstanding collaboration between community residents, local stakeholders, city officials. So, after more than three years, we are proud to welcome the DC community to a new space to play.
