Grass athletic fields openings/closings
- NOTICE -
All Grass Fields Are CLOSED as of March 27, 2017
Fields need time to dry out properly after the winter months for player safety and
to preserve season-long play-ability of the grass fields. Please stay off the fields until further notice.
We appreciate your adherence.

(Please note: the opening or closing of fields is decided by overall ground conditions, not the grooming or preparation for games.)
REMINDER: PLEASE DO NOT call the office for field condition reports or updates; the office staff has no further information than what is posted here.
The Park Department Groundskeepers determine the status of fields and this page is updated ONLY when they make changes.
All field scheduling is done through your league; please contact your team or league representative for any scheduling questions or requests.
SAFETY NOTE: If thunderstorms are in the area please seek appropriate safe shelter in a vehicle or a building; DO NOT shelter under trees.
As a general "rule of thumb": if fields are wet or frozen please stay off of them until they have a chance to dry/thaw to avoid damage.
Fields are closed as needed to try and prevent damage that would result in costly repairs and/or extended closures. Factors to determine closures include scheduled maintenance and general ground conditions such as compaction, drainage, etc. Some fields react/recover differently which may result in fields being closed or re-opened individually.
