Please STAY OFF Madison Parks Fields and Turf

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - 9:43am

As the spring thaw slowly begins, the Madison Parks athletic fields are also beginning to thaw. The athletic fields (soccer, softball, football) are not in condition to handle large numbers of people. Please stay off of these fields during this early spring thaw.

When games or practices are played on fields with poor or unsafe conditions - such as early spring 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 team practices and pick-up games refrain from being played on the fields and parks until we give notice that it is safe to be on the fields. This will help minimize the damage to the turf.

We thank you for your understanding and patience!
