On Tuesday, the team returned to Redskins Park for the first time since minicamp and took advantage of the newly-renovated and expanded weight room, training room and kitchen.
Construction began in the spring but went into full-gear when the team traveled south to Richmond for training camp. Construction is now complete and the facility is once again fully-operational.
Redskins general manager Bruce Allen toured the facility with Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder and head coach Mike Shanahan on Friday evening to get a first look at the progress.
Allen credited the ownership for their commitment to making “constant upgrades” to the team’s three facilities.
“The inspiration behind the renovations was [Redskins owner] Dan Snyder’s commitment to giving this team the very best,” Allen told Redskins.com.
Since 2010, the Redskins have also made the following improvements to their three facilities:
--Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center constructed in Richmond, Va.
