Fields Along National Mall To Reopen

(Washington, DC)  —  It has been a long time coming, but starting Thursday, athletic fields along the National Mall will be open again. The National Park Service is launching a new online service that will let people reserve time on the fields for twenty dollars an hour. According to the Park Service, reservations for the 12 mixed-use and 12 dedicated softball fields around the National Mall are available online on a first-come, first-served basis. The fields are reopening after a 15-month closure due to the pandemic. The Park Service used the closure to upgrade the grounds by replacing blacktops on all softball fields.
