Field closures during wet weather

The Public Works Department closely monitors the condition of the sports fields during the rainy season. The fields are closed whenever a ½ 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. 

The Field Condition Hotline is 650-330-2590. Field users are encouraged to call the Field Condition 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 Field Condition Hotline will be updated as necessary. When the fields are closed, park maintenance staff places field-closed signs on the fields if practical. These signs are to help the general public. However, the Field Condition Hotline always governs whether the fields are open or closed.
