RODE is working with the Martin Richard Foundation and Boys and Girls Clubs of Dorchester to design a new field house on Mt. Vernon Street in Columbia Point. The facility will meet the overwhelming need for an indoor, year-round athletics facility specially designed to be fully accessible to individuals of all abilities.

The multi-level athletic facility will contain a turf field for soccer, rugby, football, field hockey, and more; a track for running and walking; and hard courts for basketball, tennis, and much more. The new facility will also have a nutrition center, administrative offices, classroom space, and outdoor playing fields. The Field House will be a welcoming and inclusive recreational space for all children and families to gather and connect.
