City staff closely monitor the condition of the many local sports fields during the rainy season. The fields are closed whenever a half inch or more of rain has fallen in the previous 24 hours. During inclement weather, the fields are temporarily closed to prevent damage to the fields and to alleviate safety concerns. Field users can call the Sports Field Hotline to check the status of the fields. If field and/or weather conditions are expected to change, the fields will be re-evaluated and the hotline will be updated as necessary. When the fields are closed, park maintenance staff, when practical, places field-closed signs on the fields to notify the general public; however, the hotline always governs whether the fields are open or closed.
