Updates on fields

Due to the high levels of precipitation we received in May and June, the Recreation Department posts updates about the field conditions each day on Facebook and bhubble.

Consider “liking” the recreation page and you’ll receive our updates immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding when the fields are closed.

Although closures are annoying, it does ensure the fields stay in good playing condition for the rest of the season.

This course is for children ages 10-13 years.
