Nationals Park

Home of Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals, this shining new stadium proudly represents the nation's capital by being the first LEED-certified green major sports stadium in the United States. It features energy-efficient lighting and low-flow water, has a program for recycling leftover hot dog wrappers and showcases a 6,300 square-foot green roof that covers the concessions area.
