Athletic Park is a former baseball ground located in Washington, D.C. The ground was home to the Washington Nationals aka "Statesmen", of the American Association in 1884.[1]

The ballfield was located at S Street NW (south); T Street NW (north); and 9th Street NW (east); about a quarter mile southwest of the eventual site of Griffith Stadium. The club folded before the 1884 season ended. The ballpark site is now occupied by residences and education-related buildings.
