Field maintenance schedule
A revised sportsfield maintenance schedule is in effect. Facilities will be mowed once per week. Baseball diamonds will be groomed once per week.
For safety reasons, no group will groom or rake diamonds using motorized equipment. Hand raking is permitted. Do not trench diamonds for the purposes of draining saturated facilities, as a matter of user group safety. Do not squeegee puddles onto the grass. Please squeegee puddles around the infield to dissipate water.
To learn about grass maintenance and cutting schedules, please access the Grass Maintenance Tracker tool. This tool gives you two pieces of information:
- When the grass was last cut in a park;
- The general service standards for cutting
