9th Ward Field of Dreams

The 9th Ward Field of Dreams is a $1.85 million dollar community football field, Olympic-sized running track, and stadium in development for use by the youth across the city of New Orleans. The stadium, located adjacent to the campus of George Washington Carver High School, will be open to all area high schools, middle schools, and community members free of charge. Eskew+Dumez+Ripple completed the design on a pro bono basis, and worked closely with the non-profit team in securing the donation of significant amounts of building materials.

This community space will be the first of its kind in the 9th Ward, and will serve as a model for community-centered athletic facilities across the country.
