Fields at Rest
Typically we try to ’rest’ our fields in December, January, and February. There will be times during the season(s) that fields will be closed for repairs. Closures (which field and when) will be posted on the City's website, and the field closures alert system. We ask that you abide by the resting and repair times and not utilize the fields so that we can give you a good playing surface.
