The Maintenance Division has opened all natural grass surfaces to use.  Please keep in mind some areas are still a little soft and need to be avoided but the majority of the fields are in usable condition.  We will be improving the fields as the weather keeps cooperating and we can get vehicles and equipment onto the sites to groom areas.  If rain occurs, please check this site for updated information.  The following fields are closed to use for field renovation:
Brown/Oak Hill #1 & #2 soccer fields
South High Softball - Outfield closed to soccer use, softball may play
