The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) has announced that due to recent rain, DPR grass fields will be closed Wednesday, November 16, 2011 for the safety of DPR customers. Poor field conditions can pose a hazard to participants and damage the playing surface, thereby making the field unusable over time. 

All artificial turf fields will remain open and playable at the discretion of the game officials.
