The City is conducting the Sports Field User Group renewal process. On Nov. 18 at the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, staff will present the field user group renewal staff report to the commission for a one year period Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2016. There are currently 10 approved groups that use Menlo Park sports fields for baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and flag football. In 2016, the City will add one new youth soccer club that is based in Belle Haven. This year our users punted, passed, dribbled, kicked, hit and threw for approximately 51,000 hours. We have almost 5,000 participants in our groups of which 72 percent are residents. Menlo Park is fortunate to have a mixed use of fields with a variety of surfaces that have been able to withstand the drought and two artificial turf fields ready to endure El Nino.
