Natural Grass - Open Field Times

In an effort to provide some informal, use of athletic fields by individuals and families, the Division of Parks and Recreation has provided designated time on our fields open to the community.  This access will provide for informal play at these facilities on a first come, first served basis. This is an effort to balance the needs of the community for informal use of athletic fields as well as continuing to provide opportunities for organized play. These fields are not intended for organized athletic groups during the times listed below.
