Field Closures

There will be times during each season that the City’s Department of Parks and Recreation will close fields due to inclement weather and/or field condition issues. Notifications are posted on the City’s website, and the Cancellation/Information phone line 301-600-6970). Unless otherwise notified, the fields will open the next day. Please be responsible when using wet fields.

Interested parties may signup for email or text alerts for field closings by logging onto the City’s website. The easiest way to sign up is by selecting View All under the press releases on the main page. Then on the right hand side you should see Notify Me - select. Then you can add your email address and specify which groups you would like to receive messages from and whether you want just your email or email and phone.

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. All Field Users on our emailing list will be notified of which fields will be closed and when. 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.
