Well this is pretty awesome. Thanks to a reader for sending from the Friends of Marie Reed School & Park:
The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates, and the English Premier League soccer club Manchester City, have agreed to build a new soccer pitch in the park adjacent to Marie Reed Elementary School. The work will be done through Manchester City Football Club’s US-based non-for-profit City Soccer in the Community. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend a 10-15 minute presentation at 7PM on March 27th inside Marie Reed Elementary School. Work will begin on the field on April 2nd.
The Marie Reed field is located behind the tennis courts at 18th Street and Wyoming Avenue, NW.
