Athletic Fields Remain Closed

Friday, April 8, 2011 - 11:30am

Even though we are getting closer and closer to summer, and this weekend's warm temperatures will make it FEEL like summer - the Madison Parks Athletic fields are not yet in condition to handle large numbers of people. The athletic fields (soccer, softball, football) are all still very soft.

When games are played on fields with poor or unsafe conditions - participants and spectators can be injured. Also, major damage to the fields can result. Afterwards, it can take months, or even years, for the fields to get back into quality playing condition.

Madison Parks asks that teams and pick-up games refrain from being played on the fields and parks until April 15. This will help minimize the damage to the turf.

We thank you for your understanding and patience!
