Data set descripition
The city has playing fields ranging from non-regulation size or gravel fields to regulation size grass fields and artificial turf. Except for artificial turf fields, all of the Park Board's fields, courts, diamonds and outdoor facilities are available for casual use on a first-come, first-serve basis when they are not closed for maintenance or in use by someone who has a permit. You must have a permit to use artificial turf fields.
All grass fields are reviewed by field maintenance staff to determine repairs, playability and closures and this dataset indicates the play fields that are closed for maintenance.
