Fun On the Sports Fields Coming Soon
April 13, 2011
Edmontonians eager to spring into action on City sports fields will have to wait a few more weeks.
While fields may appear ready now, more drying time is required before any activity can take place. The City is reminding residents to refrain from using sports fields until the City confirms they are suitable for play. Using the fields before the opening date could result in significant damage, causing delays and, in some instances, closure for the entire season.
The City hopes to open sports fields on May 2, depending on weather conditions in the coming weeks.
The Sports Field Operations Team continues to monitor fields for safety, the level of moisture and standing water, as well as drainage capabilities.
