Field Closures - All natural turf athletic fields are closed during December, January and February. This closure enables the fields a chance to rest, as well as prevent damage to the fields during wet weather. Other field closures may occur for maintenance needs throughout the year.  City staff will provide onsite notifications when fields are expected to be closed.
