Respect the sports fields closure

KELOWNA - The City of Kelowna would like to remind residents that the City’s sports fields are still closed, despite the warm weather and sunny skies.

The grass needs to be actively growing and the fields need to dry out to ensure the best quality turf for players during the spring season. The fields are scheduled to open April 7, weather permitting.

For those searching for a place to play, there are four practice fields available in addition to the artificial turf sports field at Mission Recreation Park.
·         Walrod Park
·         Johnson Park
·         Practice area at Mission Recreation Park (area with goal on left off Gordon Dr. and Lexington Dr.)
·         Practice field at Parkinson Recreation Park

Teams still need to book the space through the City.

Park washrooms and water services will open on April 1.
