Sports fields and ball diamonds updates

All sports fields and diamonds are open.

Note: sportsfields are inspected daily, Monday to Friday, and closure notice is made by 2 p.m. If rain begins after 2 p.m., or on the weekend, please use due diligence and responsibility by not using the fields. Notify Facility Bookings staff before the end of the first business day if you will be cancelling any time because of the weather.

When it rains, soil becomes saturated which can make it dangerous for participants and damage facilities. If sportsfields are damaged and repairs are necessary, it might mean an extended closure until the field is fixed and safe for play. We may not be able to provide groups with an alternate facility during a field closure. So it is in everyone’s best interest to ensure that fields are not used if play will damage the turf.

Groups who continue to play on closed or wet fields:

  • Will be charged and invoiced at the full unsubsidized rate;
  • Will be held responsible for the cost of the field repairs and any resulting lost revenues;
  • And may have their facility contracts revoked.
