Garfield Playfield shares its campus with Garfield Community Center and Medgar Evers Pool. It features a playground, tennis courts, football field, track, restrooms, and other sports fields.

The playfield was originally named "Walla Walla" named for an Indian tribe in SE Washington, which means "place of many waters (streams)". In 1923 the Park Board named the Playfield after the school which was named to honor James A. Garfield, the 20th U.S. President in 1881.
